ENVIRONMENT

We have developed numerous methods to protect the natural environment and to raise awareness amongst all involved with the event.  This is a collective effort that involves working with our partners SANParks, Table Mountain National Park, the City of Cape Town, Friends of Table Mountain, Sugarbird Project, Sustainable Ceder as well as the ITRA Green Programme... as well as the runners and supporters, sponsors and volunteers.

DEVELOPMENT RUNNERS

RMB Ultra-trail Cape Town® will contribute financially to developing trail running for disadvantaged communities and fostering the next group of elite runners. We have created the platform to expose talent from South Africa to the best trail runners and events in the world. We will offer up to 30 entries per year and will manage the process of booking transport and accommodation for the runners.

ITRA'S GREEN PROGRAMME

ITRA’s program seeks to encourage the trail running community to join forces, working together to reduce the environmental impact of our sport. The responsibility rests with each of us. By being eco-responsible, we hope that trail running can make a positive contribution to environmental conservation and educate the public on the need to be mindful of the impact of our activities on the planet.
