During late July every year, the toughest and most enduring get to test their mettle on a gruelling 40 km off-road marathon around the peaks that surround Hout Bay. Known to be one of the toughest trails in South Africa, this challenge is open to both individuals and relay teams.
What makes this race so unique is that there are no route markings along the trail through the natural setting surrounding Hout Bay. Participants are given only a map and have to depend on themselves to stick to the route (there are penalties for deviating from the route or taking shortcuts).
If you fancy yourself up to the challenge, make sure you register for the next event!
