2 Distances To Choose From

All routes are fully marked and do not require a GPS or self-navigation. Aid Stations are positioned along the route. Distances between aid stations vary from 7km to 14km.

Ultra Distance (70km)

The Ultra is a notoriously tough course, mainly because day 1 takes place in steep mountainous terrain with approx 2300m of elevation gain. Stage 1 quickly earned itself the reputation of one of South Africa’s toughest stages on a multiday event. Stage 2 is much easier (350m elevation gain), but not to be totally underestimated on tired legs!

Marathon Distance (42km)

The Marathon distance was added in 2017. Stage 1 is a tough 25km, it also climbs up the escarpment, but does not go down into the Blyde River Canyon which means it has considerably less elevation gain. To receive a finishers medal participants must finish the Ultra or Marathon Distance on both days. Finishing both days, but on different courses will earn a Marathon medal.
