The race weekend started with PT55, The Peninsula Traverse 55km. The point to point race set off from Llandudno at 07H00, made their way to Hout Bay via Suther Peak and continued to the race village in Gardens.
WHILE PT55 ATHLETES WERE IN THE THICK OF RACING, the Explorer 23KM (EX23) runners were getting underway in the Constantia greenbelts. It wouldn't be long until PT55 leaders joined the some of the EX23 runners. With both PT55 and EX23 runners closing in on Gardens RC, the finish line was starting to fill up and the cow bells were begining to make an appearance.
With the final runners of PT55 and EX23 across the finish line at Gardens RC, it was time for RMB Ultra-trail Cape Town to get ready for the next race start. THE INAUGURAL 100 MILER, UTCT. Hosting or running a 100 miler across the Cape Peninsula has been the dream of so many, finally it would become a reality.
100 mile runners bravely took on the night, the wicked South Easter (a name paired with the wind that blows across the peninsula) picked up and continued to gale throughout race weekend. The sun rose at 05h35, giving UTCT participants renewed energy. The 100KM started at 06h00, taking on a new, tougher route.
