Where: Drakensberg, Rhodes, Eastern Cape
As the Rhodes Run plans for its 23rd event on 16 July 2011, organizers think back to the beginning when the concept of an event to attract people to this breathtakingly beautiful part of South Africa was born. That was back in 1986 and since then Rhodes property owners have welcomed runners to rise to the challenge of tackling some harsh, but rewarding, trails.
Taking place in mid-winter means that on a number of occassions, runners have had the opportunity of seeing the hilly area around the village of Rhodes blanketed in snow. This is not a race for the faint-hearted, but many who have run the race, return year after year to enjoy the experience. For more information go to the website at www.rhodesrun.za.net
