The venue for this event is the scenic picnic site at the Blythedale Coastal Resort, set in the shade of the Waterberry trees. With the beach just over the dunes, this is a perfect setting for a day out.
KZNTR KidZone available for children 2yrs+, so parents can get out on the trails! Experienced childminders and stimulating, fun games!
The short course winds up through the dunes surrounding the start / finish among tall forests. The second half descends back down to the start finish, taking in sea views between the trees. The route is largely sandy single track and the start / finish venue a spectacular picnic site below the shady flatcrown trees.
Route & profile TBC.
The course exits the picnic site onto the beach for 1km, before climbing through the dunes onto a contour road. This road undulates, parallel to the coast, before turning inland along the edge of the mangrove-lined lagoon. Runners will climb up to a higher contour road that meanders through plantations to a viewing platform, with a breath-taking 180deg view up and down the coastline. The final few km descend through the forested single track back to the spectacular picnic site below the shady flatcrown trees.
