EXCLUSIVE BEZHOEK EXTREME TRAIL LAUNCH
You’ve heard about the Bezhoek Extreme trails and finally the time has come to experience it for yourself.
Our official trail launch will take place from Saturday 16 March to Sunday 17 March and in partnership with THE MUNGA trail runners can experience a little bit of what real ultra-endurance running is about.
Of course nothing can compare to THE MUNGA but this exclusive launch will give you an opportunity to test your equipment, plan a mini race -, sleep -, and nutrition strategy. We will make GPS tracks available and provide technical advice and assistance courtesy of Navworld to all participants.
WHAT TO EXPECT
  • All our marked Trails will be open from 6:00 on Saturday morning, right through the night until 15:00 on Sunday afternoon for unlimited use. Route distances range from 17km up to 56km. For more information on our trails click here: https://www.bezhoekextreme.co.za/our-trails/
  • Two times Munga Trail Winner Bennie Roux will use this as final preparation for the 2019 Munga Trail where he will defend his title for a 2nd year in a row. If THE TOUGHEST RACE ON EARTH is on your bucket list this is a must-do and without giving too much of his 2019 race strategy away Bennie will offer some insight into what it takes to finish THE MUNGA.
