MERRELL Autumn Day Run - JHB
Sat 9 Mar 2019, 07:00 @ Roodepoort, Gauteng

Mountain Runner Events

“The one with that hill.” A proper set of trail runs in Jozi that winds though the lush Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens – voted the best place to get back to nature in Gauteng for 9 years in a row – and climbs the relentless ridges of the adjoining Muldersdrift Hobby Park.

The 12km and 20km routes which head into the open rocky  grassland and include more technical running sections, together with the 6km loop, are all a great challenge to tackle on a Saturday morning. Fiercely competed or enjoyed at a more leisurely pace, both pass by the cascading waterfall and cliffs home to a breeding pair of majestic Verreaux’s Eagles.
