The afb SOX Trail Run

The afb Southern Cross 3 day Trail Run is an unique experience!

Runners will get the opportunity to test themselves over 3 completely different terrain – Mountain, Forest & Coastline. This Event caters for the needs of both the more technical runner and the less technical. The routes are varied with regards to challenges under foot, beauty of very different vegetation and completely different scenery.

After your day of exploring, you can relax in the tranquil surroundings of the Race Village and enjoy a scrumptious meal during the slide show & prize giving in the Marquee tent early evening.

This Race will change your way of living …

3 unique routes starting with a Mountain stage on Day 1 in the Outeniqua Mountains, beautiful trails through indigenous Forest on Day 2 and finishing off with rugged “on-the-edge” Coastline run on Day 3.

The gauntlet has been thrown – are you up for the Challenge?
