ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE PICK N PAY GOUKAMMA TRAVERSE!

But fear not, if you've missed the online entries, you WILL still be able to enter ON the day of the event! Offering a balance of single track, jeep track and a short section of suburban running, the Pick n Pay Goukamma Traverse Trail Run presented by Lake Pleasant Living spoils trail runners with access to some of South Africa's highest vegetated fossil dunes, the Garden Route's most breath taking views of deserted beaches and spectacular elevated vistas of Lake Pleasant.

A challenging 19km trail run, the Goukamma Traverse starts with a ride across the wide, dark waters of the Goukamma River on a pont to the start on the western river bank. The route traverses the Cape Nature reserve from its most eastern to its most western point and ends in Sedgefield on the Village Green, the action hub of the annual Slow Festival (25-27 March). The run is ideal for all avid trail runners as a training session for longer events and perfect as a first event for runners transitioning from tar to trail.

Registration for the 19km race will take place on Sat 26th March at the Goukamma Cape Nature Info centre (access from the Buffalo Bay rd), whilst those wanting to do the scenic 5.5km Family Fun Trail Run route should enter at the Village Green in Sedgefield. Registration for both races is from 6.30-7.30am, briefing at 7.45am and start at 8.00am.

There will be a transfer shuttle back to the start of the 19km run for those who need. There is a R30pp charge for the transfer. The shuttle will leave Sedgefield to head back to Goukamma after prize giving.

Do NOT miss the Goukamma Traverse, it's one of the most spectacular runs you'll ever do!! Contact Amanda Dixon for more info on 072 949 3002 and see www.slowfestival.co.za for more info.
