The RB Africa Wild Coast Challenge is the ultimate bucket list event for trail enthusiasts.
The 120 kms is run over three days, with ‘the herd’ covering a mixture of terrains, comprising virgin beach stretches, rocks and boulders, grassy hillocks, narrow goat paths, sand dunes, hiking trails, old Jeep tracks and short sections of gravel.
What are dates for 2022?
Thurs 17 - Sat 19 February
When do entries open?
Entries are not opening as usual as the event did not take place in 2021 and entries have been carried over. There are a few places available.
The RB Africa Katberg Skytrail is a 35 km trail run at 1000 - 1600 m above sea level through pristine wilderness.
The route is specifically cleared for the event and starts with a gentle trot across the Katberg Game Reserve, leading to single track through indigenous forest, up the contoured forestry road to a final climb up a rocky path to the cliff face where runners pause to take in the breathtaking scenery. From there runners traverse the mountain face before the descent winding down the rocky Kat Pass jeep track.
Hot showers, a cosy pub, race banter and great Eastern Cape hospitality await runners at the end.
UNFORTUNATELY THIS EVENT WILL NOT TAKE PLACE IN 2021 WATCH THIS SPACE FOR MORE INFO.
