FIRST EVER PET FRIENDLY 2 DAY TRAIL RUN

FOURIESBURG

FREE STATE

30 September - 1 October 2023

30 September - 1 October 2023

Join us for our second 2 day trail run/walk taking place at Affi Lande Boetiek Guest Farm - Fouriesburg in the Free State from 30 September 2023 till 1 October 2023. 
There will be various distance options available and some of them even doggy friendly!
Some come and join us for our 2nd stage run with us.

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

Saturday evening will be the official Country and Western BeerFest Themed Party so make sure to join us for this great night as well.

Online entries for the 2-day trail run, up until 25 August 2023, will receive a special event t-shirt. Online entries close on 20 September 2023.
All entrants will receive a very specifically designed challenge medal
at the end of the two days.

The top 3 overall male and female finishers for each of the 3 challenges will also receive special medal during the awards ceremony on Sunday.
These 3 finishers will be determined based on the results of the 1st and 2nd day times. Single day entrants do not qualify for these prizes.


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.
