Where: Hermanus , Hermanus , Western Cape
The first day of this two-day stage trail run consists of a 23 km beach run, followed by a 27 km mountain run on day two. The run starts out on an old 4x4 track along the cliffs overlooking the bay for around 4 kms before dropping down toward the beach itself. Runners are asked to stay on the low tide sand area to avoide disturbing the "toby" or oyster-catchers which nest above high tide. Runners will see numerous other bird species on the route and may catch sight of Southern Right Whales offshore.
Day two starts on 800 meters of tarred road before heading into single track hiking trail, contouring up toward the top of the mountain and the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. Spectacular views, valleys, ridges, bird life, fynbos and klipspringer are all features of this route. For more information and to enter online visit www.quantumadventures.co.za
