Golden Gate Challenge:
The Golden Gate Challenge is a three-day track and trail run through over 70kms of the most rugged yet scenic mountains of the Free State, situated in the magnificent Golden Gate Highlands National Park to raise funds for the bearded vulture and conservation of biodiversity as well as the revival of eco-tourism activities. There are shorter courses available for those not ready to explore the full 3 days. Try the 2 day 27km Kgodumodumo run which is 10km on Saturday and 17km on the Sunday OR take it easy with the 10km Dino run which takes place on the Saturday. There’s a 17km one day run named after the legendary Ntate Joseph Mabote who was a cherished member of the SANParks team.
