The Rhodes Dryland Traverse is a race like no other! The four-day stage race, which showcases the classic trails of the Klein Karoo, has fast become a favourite on the South African running scene. It kicks off with an underground start in the world-famous Cango Caves (this is the only event that has permission to take runners through this area).
The stages ahead include traversing the mighty Swartberg Mountains – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, breathtaking views of the Great and Klein Karoo, and trails that run past the renowned Raubenheimer Dam.
There simply is no equal when it comes to the sense of achievement, setting and overall spirit of this event – the Rhodes Dryland Traverse is a must for every adventure-seeker!
The Queen stage will once again include the mighty Swartberg Mountain with a return to the original start position on the more challenging Southern slope. From the start, there is only one way, and that is up – after summiting, runners reach the water point at just over 5 kms into the race.
