The Houtkapper Trail Run offers 3 routes of varying lengths and difficulty.

The 15km and 27km routes have been chosen not only to challenge the intermediate to experienced trail runners but to provide them with an opportunity to experience the deepest secrets at the heart of the Garden Route National park. Single track and terrain to excite trail runners of all ability including an easier route for the beginner trail runner of 9km. Water can be drunk and bottles/hydration packs filled at the various water crossings – don’t be put off by the colour (tannin).
