You can choose one of three ways to participate:

  • 5 Km Fun Run/Walk

    Young and old are invited to join in the fun! You can either choose to run or walk the distance and set your own pace! The route is not pram friendly. Dogs are allowed, but not without a leash.

    Entry Fee: R80 (adults), R40 (under 12 years)
    Starting Time: 08h00

  • 10 Km Trail Run

    This one is for all the trail running enthusiasts. Come and experience the beautiful routes and trails on Lourensford Wine Estate. It promises to be an interesting mix!

    Runners will be timed by the organisers of the event.

    Entry Fee: R150
    Starting Time: 07h00

  • 6 Hour, 5 Km Team Relay Run

    Runners enter as a team (1, to a maximum of 6 members per team). Team members will run laps of 5 km each. The challenge for teams will be to complete as many 5 km laps as possible in the allotted time period, i.e., 6 hours (07h30 – 13h30). Nominate a team captain and create a cool name for your team. Decide your team theme, i.e.: flower power, minions, cowboys, etc.

    Runners will be timed by the organisers of the event.

    Teams will be challenged to raise a minimum of R5,000. Involve non-runners by getting sponsorships! This way we can ALL show GRATITUDE.

    It is all about team work and supporting your team mates, while they are soaking in the exquisite surrounds of the beautiful Lourensford Wine Estate. There will be live music, prizes, lucky draws, enthusiastic athletes and sponsors supporting a worthy cause!

    Entry fee: R750 per team
    Starting Time: 07h30
