#BigTreeTrailRunSeries – Routes and Elevation Charts


This week was pure trail bliss laying out the routes for the 3 days in December. I am sure that everybody will enjoy the varied terrain over the three days and both the short and long course runners will certainly have a great idea of what the area has to offer and why we, who live in the Garden Route, are so spoiled.

Here are all the maps and please note I have done them in “basic map” format to not let “the cat out of the bag” and give the locals an advantage (forgive me):

Day 1: Long Course

Day 1: Short Course

Day 2: Long Course

Day 2: Short Course

Day 3: Long Course

Day 3: Short Course

Elevation Charts

To make the selection easier, as well as to prepare for what lies ahead, I have summarized all the elevation profiles on one page with total distance and elevation summarized at the bottom.

    Could the routes be placed on Google maps? It’s difficult to follow where they go.
    My guess for the long routes:
    Day 1: Groenkop
    Day 2: Tierkop
    Day 3: George dam, Saasveld half marathon reverse.
    Can’t wait to collect my prize for the correct answers, thanks 🙂

      Geert, the maps will be printed on google maps at registration. At the most 1 out of 3 for your guessing. 🙂
