Event Date: 23 – 25 November 2018
Venue: Bezuidenhoutshoek Nature Reserve
This three day Trail Running Festival is without a doubt the most exciting addition to the Trail Running calendar. The Bezhoek Extreme Trail Running Festival offers runners an experience second to none. It takes place on the Bezuidenhoutshoek Private Nature reserve on the banks of the Olifants river just outside of Middelburg.
The Bezuidenhoutshoek Nature Reserve, or Bezhoek as it’s more affectionately known, has it all. Situated in the Mpumalangan transition zone between the Lowveld and Highveld, it boasts over 120 indigenous grass species, which is more than the significantly larger Kruger National Park. Cycad populations of the critically endangered Encephalartos Middeburgensis and vulnerable Lanatus dot the landscape as testaments to our planet’s evolutionary past. Then there’s the permanent wetlands and streams, many of which are so pristine you can drink from them.
The start and finish of all three distances will be on the Bezuidenhoutshoek Nature Estate. The Race Village will cater for both runner and supporter with a variety of refreshments and live entertainment.
Walk away with some incredible prizes. To stand a chance of winning, simply enter the Bezhoek Extreme Trail Run and join us on the weekend of 23 – 25 November 2018. The prizes up for grabs will be announced when ticket sales open. This is one trail run event you don’t want to miss.
