DEVELOPMENT RUNNERS' FUND

To develop and grow trail running in disadvantaged communities in South Africa

.

ENVIRONMENTAL FUND

The proceeds will go to Table Mountain National Park's Honorary Rangers to assist with various programmes that sustain the National Park e.g. clearing alien vegetation, trail rehabilitation, arranging cleanups and other environmental programmes.

DEVELOPMENT RUNNERS' FUND

 

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.

 

Runners will need to send their CVs and a small bio to info@ultratrailcapetown.com and a panel will select those deemed worthy of support via the fund. We will manage the support and will share as much information about the squad during their training and on race day.

Getting involved:

You can run RMB Ultra-trail Cape Town® for free if you manage to raise R10,000 toward the UTCT Trail Fund with all proceeds going toward the Development Runners Fund and Environmental Funds.
 
How does it work?

 

  • Enter the Event through the regular entry gateway once entries open - the respective fees apply.

  • You then register with the UTCT Trail Fund by creating a profile within Back-A-Buddy who host the fundraising on our behalf. 

  • Do an amazing job of getting friends and family to donate to your cause!

  • We will refund you once the event has been completed.  Refunds will be paid out between 10 & 20 January of the following year.  Fundraising duration from March to 05 January.

  • Your refund will come from the money you have raised and the difference will go to our causes.

  • You can register and start fundraising anytime before Race Day.

 
*Refund amounts:
  • R10,000 raised = 100% Refund

  • R5,000 raised = 50% Refund

  • R3,000+ raised = 25% Refund

 

Note: no refunds on amounts less than R3,000.  However, 100% of the contribution will have gone to supporting a disadvantaged runner or in support of the environment.
