Outeniqua Stadium, George - 12:00
Max Allowed Race Time
Running a 100 miles over varied terrain is a true test of human endurance. Match that with the spectacular playground which the Outeniqua Mountain Range provides and you will get the MUT Miler. This route is for those athletes seeking, that sense of belonging - the stillness of belonging to the wilderness.
You will start with the Vertical Kilometer climb to George Peaks and follow some of the most sublime mountain trails to descent via the original Cradock Peak route to the base of the old Voortrekker pass aka; Cradock pass consisting of the longest climb of the route. From here you will dip down into the infamous Pass to Pass route and cross the Outeniquas into Champherskloof. Here you will experience the fynbos of the Klein Karoo and off course the heat!
Next up a welcoming stop on the famous Montagu Pass before you start your ascent over the mountains again. Your lunch stop might come back to haunt you as you negotiate Dizzy Heights Climb to the top. On the top, you will encounter mountain ridge running with 360˚ views all the way down to the George Dam.
From here you will leave the 60km route and cross the mighty Kaaimans river to the Groenkop Nature Reserve. You will enter the picturesque Groeneweide Trails to exit the indigenous forest at Saasveld. From the Saasveld Aid station you will leave the 100km route and start to make your way to the beaches of Wilderness.
After a dip in the ocean you will make your way back to the Garden Route dam where you will join up with the 100km route to run along the banks of the Garden Route Dam and make your way back up to Tierkop where you will re-join the 60km route to make sure you to not miss out on the favourites like The Wall and Tonnelbos. The last thorn in the flesh will be old Henry’s Hill to signal the home coming.
