What is For The Trails Community Runs?

“For The Trails” are a community based set of runs within the Outeniqua Mountains. All funds raised will go towards local trail maintenance and safety efforts.

The "Vert Runs" will form part of a 3 event series, with the first two building up to the finale run in March. This is an initiative by the “MUT by UTMB” to raise funds, give back to the community and create a space to have fun in the Outeniqua Mountains.

The Series Dates are:

  • 23 December 2023 - Vandalens Fest
  • 20 January 2024 - George Peaking
  • 9 March 2024 - The Vert Run

Each event will consist of a longer, more strenuous run and a shorter, more achievable run, each building up to the finale in March. The aim is to raise funds but also to help prepare runners for the MUT by UTMB race in May 2024.

These runs will have a "no fuss" approach, giving you a good time in the mountain and a high five at the end. The minimum fee to participate will be R200 per event, but you are welcome to donate more to the cause. Prizes up for grabs include entries for the MUT by UTMB, as well as other prizes from our sponsors.
