EXPLORER 23KM

RMB Ultra-trail Cape Town®'s 23km is a gateway to ultra-trail running. Starting at 9:00 am on Saturday morning 25 November.

 

Runners will start at Alphen Hotel and head out towards the start of Alphen Trail and the greenbelts of Constantia. From the Aid Station at Alphen Trail, they will climb through the technical sections of Cecilia and Newlands Forests followed by a steep drop down into the University of Cape Town's upper campus. The final 10km requires digging deep with an intense climb to get up to the Blockhouse and lower traverse of Devils Peak. Reaching it marks the home stretch, with the reward of incredible views of the City, the Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain and Lions Head.
