The TOM Trail Run Series will be hosted annually, with the first event of the series at Table Mountain National Park, counting towards runners’ Blue Number tally.

Race Director Debra Barnes says, “With the exponential growth of trail running over the past decade, this Trail Run Series was born from a desire to grow our Trail Run offering in the Western Cape, with new and challenging trail runs against the diverse and breath-taking expanse of spectacular inland terrain, along the coast, across wetlands and over mountains.

“The TOM Trail Run Series, which caters for both novices and experience trail runners, is a thrilling trail experience across diverse natural landscapes, challenging mountain paths, and some of the most beautiful coastal routes on the African continent”.

COVID-19 Protocols – NONE APPLICABLE 

As the event capacity is under 2 000, there are no applicable COVID protocols. There is no need to upload your vaccination certificate, or to provide proof of a negative antigen test.

Masks remain mandatory at indoor venues, such as Race Pack Collection on site.
