Falke Resolution Trail Run, 19 January 2020
It’s the new year and you have made your resolutions. Now all you need to do is enter to make your resolutions a reality. What better way to celebrate the new you than by running through beautiful vineyards up Klapmutskop with spectacular views of the Winelands and Table Mountain in the distance. Join us on the 19th of January for the Resolution Trail Run the first event of the 2020 Falke Trail Run Series presented by Sportmans Warehouese happening at Dirtopia Trail Centre, Delvera Farm, on R44 about 10 km from Stellenbosch.
There are four distances to choose from so whether you are a beginner or more experienced runner, there is a race for all abilities. Registration starts promptly at 06h15 at Dirtopia Trail Centre. Staggered race starts will see the longest distance of 15 km recommended for the fit runners only starting at 07h15, 12.5km at 07h30, 7km at 7h45 and the 5km at 08h00, walkers also welcome to join for the 5km.
Pre-entries can be done online at www.dirtopia.co.za until Thursday, 16 January. Prices start at R170 for the 15km, R160 for the 12.5km, R130 for the 7.5km and R110 for the 5km, while kids under 18 cost R50. Please note late entries, if available on the event day, will be at an additional fee.
The 5km consists of Jeep tracks at the bottom of the farm and it circles amongst the vineyards offering self-help waterpoints. The 7.5km green route has a jeep track and singletracks with a refreshment station about halfway. The 12.5km blue route provides more of a work-out and climbs on jeep track amongst the vineyards with singletrack and meets the last part of the green route just before the refreshment station. The longest distance of 15km follows the same route as the 12.5km with an extra 3km singletrack section to the top of the Koppie that is rocky and steep. A self-help water point is halfway and a refreshment station 4km from the finish. We suggest runners bring their own water along too.
Timing for all events will be done with Amarider Trail Tags. No tag, no time. Tags can be rented or bought on race day. Medals awarded to all finishers with great Falke lucky draw prizes after the event.
