Saturday 14 July 2018 . 9th Annual event!

This very popular and well managed annual event once again attracted a large number of runners and spectators.  Participants braved the mountainous trail and those that could not run walked part of the track.  The weather was good, the spirit was high and everybody, including the dogs that took their owners for a walk, enjoyed a great day in the beautiful Village of Haenertsburg in the Magoebaskloof area!
