EVENT INFORMATION

 

The Trail girl event were created as an active women’s weekend getaway, to run on safe and beautiful trails with other women, have FUN and let your hair down, forget about everything at home or at work, just enjoy the trails, the beauty, the accommodation, the food and the companionship of other women. This Women Only Trail Run Event are hosted the in the most beautiful part of South Africa, the Garden Route at a small town called Wilderness. Wilderness is a small seaside town in the heart of the Garden Route, situated a short distance east of George, along the N2 at the bottom of the Kaaiman’s River Pass. It is known for its long white sandy beach and lagoons.

You will be running on the most beautiful Indigenous hiking trails and along the coastline of the Garden Route National Park between George and Wilderness. It will not  be technical routes, but it is design to be FUN, but at the same time give you the satisfaction that you have completed a great challenge with some climbs, single track trails, crossing rivers etc. The idea is to take lots of photos and enjoy the run, not race it.  Day 1 will be in the beautiful area of Groeneweide on the SANparks trails, just outside George where you will run under the cover of the indigenous forest with many yellow wood trees (the giants of the forest)  and other beautiful trees with an abundance of birds like the Knysna Loerie. Day 2 you will run a short section on the beach followed by a section along the Touw River along the SANparks trails, crossing the river on a pond and finish at the race village at Fairy Knowe Hotel.

Only 500 Runners allowed.
