Running the Mountain

Enter, what has been dubbed the toughest 24km mountain run in South Africa with a vertical accent of over 1800m, the 2018 Trappers Bloemfontein 4 Peaks Mountain Challenge presented by Bloemfontein Courant.

The race takes place on Saturday the 22nd of September 2018 in the picturesque Moolmanshoek Private Game Reserve. The self-navigation, self-supported race follows a circular route around the iconic Witteberg Mountain Range and promises to challenge you in ways you never thought mountain running could.

The 4 Peaks is arguably the toughest 24km in South Africa with a vertical accent of over 1800m.The route is unique as it takes you in a circle around the Main Lodge, which is the hub of activities during the weekend. This event is a Family affair and the location allows us to cater for all, with a kiddie’s treasure hunt to game drives and Horseback riding for those that are not participating in the race. This is a self-supported and self-navigational race and as the route is circular it makes it a good entry level event for those that are looking for something more challenging than running on the trail. The 24 Km should not fool you into a false sense of security as this is Extreme Mountain running and is the equivalent to an ultra-marathon.

This is a great weekend for the entire family and the event is always evolving to create more fun and entertainment for the entire family and is a must for your race calendar.
