Glen Beach to False Bay

Western Cape

Guided trail run

Ocean2Ocean is a guided mountain trail run from Muizenberg Beach to Camps Bay via the False Bay Mountains, Silvermine Nature Reserve and Table Mountain. This route is also run in reverse at times.

This is a pack run with limited place. (30 max) and follows a spectacular rollercoaster route through the Cape Peninsula’s mountain chain. This is not a race but runners need to be fit and capable of running on technical terrain for 12 hours or more. There are frequent breaks for views and snacks and two aid stations en-route, at Constantia Nek and Silvermine.

Some consider this the trail runner’s version of the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon, Cape Town’s popular and scenic 56km road run, we call it 50km of Cape Town’s finest.
