Wilderness Run – 25 May 2013

Wilderness Run - 2013The 3rd edition of the very popular Wilderness Run will take place on 25 May 2013 in Hoekwil.

>>> Wilderness Run 2013 RESULTS<<<

This year the aim will be to have both the 21.1 km & 10 km routes to go through the farm areas with as little as tarmac as possible. We are still in the process of marking the route and as soon as I have the Route maps available I will upload them.

The sponsors Ocean Basket, Just Letting & Anton Le Roux Groothandelaars have committed themselves again and we are very excited to announce a prize purse of R13 000! Not only does this make it one of the richest races in the SWD, it is definitely becoming one of the most popular with a 200% growth in numbers from the previous year. This year we will also introduce “Electronic Chip Timing” , as we believe there will be even more runners that will take part on the day.

There will be three distances on the day: 21.1 km, 10 km & 3 km. (Maps and elevation charts – click on distance)
