Savanna Origin of Trails takes place this month

Set to take the City of Oaks by storm on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June, the third edition of the Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience has attracted the attention of a number of members of the iconic Stellenbosch Triathlon Squad (STS), including founder and head coach Vicky van der Merwe.

She explains: “STS is a multi-sport academy offering coaching for anyone who swims, cycles or runs (or does all three) from beginners to elite athletes and across all ages. We offer coached group training in Stellenbosch, online coaching (all over the world) as well as training camps for both local and visiting athletes. We currently have around 250 members and offer early-morning, mid-morning, lunch-time and late-afternoon training options.

“I’ve taken part in the Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience, but not yet the trail run as the events usually take place over the same weekend. Although it’s a two-day event, entrants get to go home after stage 1 and then return the next morning to complete stage 2. I love this. Although a number of our athletes have already entered, I am hoping to get a nice big group to take part. It’s great to have events to work towards, and it’s super convenient if the event is right on your doorstep. It will be a lot of gees!

“The Stellenbosch trail network is absolutely amazing. We are super spoilt and are truly thankful to the private landowners, trail builders and organisations that help maintain our trails. I tore my ankle ligaments in March and have been on enforced rest. Although I am not in my best shape at the moment, I do hope to finish on the podium. I am looking forward to the vibe and the views. The Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience promises to be another amazing event that is hosted by Stellenbosch based sports marketing agency, Stillwater Sports.”

The Savanna Origin of Trails proudly supports the Stellenbosch Trail Fund (STF).

Trail runners and mountain bikers can show their support by making a donation during the Savanna Origin of Trails online entry process.
