Golden Gate Challenge


The Golden Gate Challenge. This is a one-day trial run through the most rugged yet scenic mountains of the Free State, situated in the magnificent Golden Gate Highlands National Park. This event allows runners to traverse through the park and explore breathtaking landscapes while raising funds for the conservation activities within the Golden Gate Highlands National Park.

This one-day run gives you the opportunity to run into wilderness areas that aren’t accessible to the general public and comprises a range of distances that will test your endurance. We have the ultimate 50km for the elite runners, 25km for those who like a good challenge but aren’t yet ready to explore the full 50km distance, followed by the easy looking but still tough 10km.

In collaboration with the official volunteer organisation of South African National Parks (SANParks) and the SANParks Honorary Rangers (SHR), this exciting event raises funds for the critically endangered Bearded Vulture and the conservation activities within the Golden Gate Highlands National.

This race is home to the golden mountains, where the golden reward is earned!
