The original VWS Trail Challenge on the slopes of Table Mountain is back for its 16th year in 2020, and now with a brand-new start location – Gardens Tech Rugby Club.

This race is designed as a trail run with stunning views over the city of Cape Town while enjoying invigorating trails on one of the 7 Wonders of Nature – Table Mountain.

Take in the beauty of the lower slopes of Table Mountain and Devils Peak, the rambling tracks of Deer Park, the glorious single-track contour above Tafelberg Road and experience the majesty of early morning Cape Town.

Organised and run entirely by the volunteer wildland firefighters, all proceeds go towards their organisation, an entirely volunteer-run, non-profit entity dedicated to the protection of biodiversity and the preservation of our natural heritage.

The original VWS Trail Challenge offers runners a chance to do two routes: 20km or 10km (runners and walkers), with the race start and finish at Gardens Tech Rugby Club, Oranjezicht, Cape Town. Any donations are welcome and would be greatly appreciated.

10km – R230
20km – R340
