Times for Trail Runs

  • Trail Run

Start Time

The Trail Runs will take place on Good Friday, 25 March 2016. Both routes start at the Jameson Plaza, UCT and take in sections of forest, the slopes of Devils Peak and Groote Schuur Estate, finishing on the UCT rugby fields.

  • 06:30 - 22km in batches with 10 min. intervals
  • 07:30 - 12km in batches with 10 min. intervals

Cut-off Times

Cut off for both distances is at 12:00.

22km runners have 90 mins to run the first 7km to Tafelberg Road and 2.5 hours to make it off the mountain to the Blockhouse (11km).


All runners will be required to wear a RaceTec timing chip on one of their shoes during the race. The chip must be registered in the runner's name and not belong to someone else. Runners who do not own a chip (or have lost theirs) must enclose the additional timing chip fee of R120 with their entry fee. Runners who have ordered timing chips will find these in their race packs at Registration before the race.  The timing chip becomes your property after the race and can be used for all events in SA that use the same timing system.

It is compulsory to have your timing chip at Registration in order to collect your race pack (with your race number, etc.).  Please ensure that you keep your timing chip in a safe place after the race in order to avoid having to buy a new chip.
