Nov 12th 2016 will see the 3rd running of the Trail du Mont Rochelle. This year’s edition will have various trail options incl a short 5km run, and the more challenging 18km & 25km events. Included in 2016 is a relay option for the 25km route. If running 25km solo on these technical trails in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve seems to daunting, why not share the load with a friend?
Runner 1 will run the initial climb (Leg 1) to the first viewpoint, swop over to runner 2 for the loop on top of the mountain (Leg 2), before runner 1 runs back down the mountain and getting all the praise at the bottom (Leg 3)
There is a special 5km entry fee for kids under 13, and Franschoek park runners, on presentation of their parkrun barcodes.
Although trailrunning should be self sufficient, runners on the 18km/25km routes will be hydrated by Tailwind Nutrition & fueled by Racefood.
Timing will be done by Livetime. Timing bands will be available to buy (R50) or rent (R10) on the day. These timing bands can be used at various other events like Impi Challenge, Warrior Race, Run The Vines & Wolf Pack Trail events.
