Entries for the inaugural Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra Trail Run closing soon
(Cape Town, 5 May 2015) Entries for the inaugural Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra Trail Run – also known as The Beast - will close on Thursday, 21 May 2015.
The event takes place on Sunday, 24 May 2015, and will feature a 22km and 47km Trail Run.
The Beast was born after the organisers of the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon started looking for opportunities to extend their trail run offering and to complement the sold-out Trail Runs already in place over the Easter Weekend.
The event will start and finish at the Lion’s Den at the Old Zoo by Rhodes Memorial, from where trail runners will explore the mountain top wilderness of Table Mountain, one of the official Natural Wonders of the World.
The 22km run will follow the same route as its Easter Weekend counterpart, while the 47km Ultra will explore the various contour paths of Devil’s Peak, Kloof Nek and the Pipe Track, and ultimately summit Maclear’s Beacon before descending the treacherous Nursery Ravine and returning to the finish via Newlands Forest.
According to trail planner and co-host, Trevor Ball from Energy Events, The Beast promises to be one of the toughest and most spectacular one-day trail events on the race calendar.
