Ending at the Jan van Riebeeck High School fees/festival, pumping with beer tents and live music, this challenging 20km trail run takes you on a full tour of Signal Hill and Lions Head. Presented by the makers of Table Mountain Challenge, Two Oceans Trail Run and Bastille Trail Runs, this event will rock your socks in the New Year!

Entry fee is a reasonable R295, including a T-shirt, goody bag from Sportsmans Warehouse and all the usual race services from the nut jobs at Energy Events (like recently trained medics, random timekeepers, no water tables and lots of abuse)! As with all events in the TMNP, entries are limited to a few hundred runners. Batch Starts are alphabetical, you may request the Elite Start Batch in the entry form, if you can run seriously fast and need the prize money! Proceeds are for the School charity fund.

Loads of amazing views of Cape Town's iconic features (Table Mountain, Waterfront, Stadium, Robben Island, Clifton Beaches), perfect single track!

Good running, some walking, a few scrambles, little bit of crawling... No water en-route, make sure you bring your own hydration.
