The first ever Funky Fynbos Festival Cape Mohair Trail Run 10k was held this year!
What an awesome run! Stunning scenery, a well-stocked water table with bananas and fresh orange slices, excellent signage, fantastic goodie bag with socks, ice pack and protea seeds as well as money-off coupons and fliers for other races!
There has been loads of positive feedback about the event, such as ‘That was the best trail run I have done this year,’ and ‘That was the most beautiful run ever.'
There was a 30km trail run, which I would never be able to do, which was according to the Fynbos Trail website, 'designed to challenge even hard core trail runners. It covered a full 30km of The Fynbos Trail hiking route, which is normally walked over three days, with an altitude gain of 1200 metres and 3 steep climbs,'
There was a 5km run through the Platbos Forest.
I did the 10km Pincushion route, which took us through the beautiful Flower Valley and over Windheuvel, and through the Lomond vineyards. According to my Garmin, there was over 260 metres of climbing!
I thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to do it again next year! Although, trail running is totally different from road running and I certainly noticed the difference the next day, or two.. or three... !
Thank you to my Hubs for taking me!
Let the pictures tell the story!
