Schoemansdal

This spectacular range of Mountains has yet to see a trail running event and race, and a proper christening is due to come on 15 August 2021 with 42km, 21km and 10km courses on offer, all starting at finishing at Schoemansdal (30 mins from Louis Trichardt) at the base of the mountain range. All three courses climb up the mountain and can be considered proper challenges.

Schoemansdal is an ideal venue with both dorm-style and camping options. There are a variety of ticket and package options. The greater area also has a number of lodge options within 30 minutes drive.
