Trail Running: #FALKERUN
The popular FALKE Trail Run Series presented by Dirtopia is in full swing and offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful trails in the Stellenbosch Winelands.
Online entries are now open for the second run of the season taking place on Sunday, 7 May at the picturesque Peter Falke Wines. Nestled against the majestic slopes of the Helderberg Mountains, the farm offers the perfect canvas for nature to paint its autumn colours and for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy a trail run in the winelands before winter settles in.
Runners can choose between a 6km and 11km run with both routes offering some single track sections and vineyard trails. Entries will be limited to 700 and late entries will be taken on event day, if available with additional late entry fees applicable. Registration is from 07h45 with the races setting off at 09h00 and 09h15 respectively.
Pre-entries close on Wednesday, 3 May at a cost of R110 for the 6km and R130 for the 11km and can be done online at www.dirtopia.co.za.
Medals for all finishers and great prizes are up for grabs for the top performing men and ladies, while title sponsor FALKE and host Peter Falke Wines will offer fabulous lucky draw prizes. Dating back to the 18th century, the traditional gabled Cape Dutch buildings of the wine estate belie a contrasting modernity within. The rolling lawn is the perfect spot to relax with friends and family after the trail run.
Coffee and tasty wraps will be for sale from vendors, while the restaurant at Peter Falke Wines serves delicious platters and light lunches.
