The Bushwillow Campsite will serve as the race village for the Three Cranes Challenge. The atmosphere created during the event is one that can be enjoyed by runners and spectators. With scrumptious food and a number of beverage options, the village can become the point of social interactions with some interesting conversations!

The trails provide beautiful experiences with nature as runners traverse through the Karkloof Valley. Runners will get to view the Karkloof Nature Reserve, Mbona Private Nature Reserve, pine plantations, the charming Benvie Garden and one of the Mbona Dams.

A bonus is that runners may get sights on one or all of the three crane species whilst exploring the Karkloof Nature Reserve!
