22 - 23 OCTOBER 2022

Join us for our first 2 day trail run/walk taking place at Affi Lande Boetiek Guest Farm - Fouriesburg in the Free State from 22-23 October 2022. 
There will be various distance options available and some of them even doggy friendly!
Some come and join us for our first stage run.

The theme for this years' race is Oktober BeerFest!
The weekend will be filled with lots of trail running options, food, drinks, markets, games and live music to keep everyone entertained.

Saturday evening will be the official BeerFest Themed Party so make sure to get your dinner tickets for this great night as well.

Every challenge entry includes a special event t-shirt as well as a very specifically designed challenge medal.

The top 3 overall male and female finishers for each of the 3 challenges will also receive special prizes during the awards ceremony on Sunday.


There will be 3 different challenges to choose from of which two will be pet friendly.

The main venue for the race is at Affi Lande Boetiek Guest Farm (which is the starting point each day of the race) as well as the Meiringskloof Nature Park, right next door, which has 23 campsites and 11 chalets to choose from.   

We have made arrangements at various accommodation venues, of which some are pet friendly within Fouriesburg where you can book your stay for this weekend.
