MidYear Trail run at Muratie again

Since 2015 the MidYear Trail Run has been held by Dirtopia from Muratie wine estate to celebrate the winter solstice, except in 2020, and this year the format will change due to the pandemic lockdown Level 3 regulations.

On Saturday 26 June and Sunday 27 June, trail runners will have the option to enjoy the singletrack of the Simonsberg trail network with specially marked routes. The option for Sunday differs from Saturday with a 7 km and 11,5 km on the first day and 8,5 km and 15,5 km on the second day.

Enter online for one or both days, but it is essential that you rent or buy a Trail Tag to be timed as you can start at any time between 08:00 and 12:00. Therefore there will be no mass start and no prizegiving on the day.

On Sunday the routes will include new singletrack sections recently built by Dirtopia. Even beginners who want a taste of the sport will enjoy the short routes and fitter and more experienced trail runners will love the new trails! There will still be refreshment stations on the routes and one split between distances per day. Runners can still get their finishers medal when they hand in race numbers (and rental tag) at the finish line. Registration will be open all morning, so that runners do not have a set time for arrival.

A lucky draw will take place, but at any time during the morning a few lucky finishers will receive hampers of Sportsmans Warehouse vouchers, Muratie wine or FALKE socks.

A coffee station with muffins is available next to the start/finish at the Trail Centre, but if you like a sit-down meal, please call Muratie Farm Kitchen on 021 865 2330 to book a table. Breakfast is from 09:00 until 10:45 and lunch from 12:00. Snacks are available in the Trail Centre and shower facilities next door to the Trail Centre.

Enter online by Thursday evening at www.dirtpass.co.za with under 18’s paying only R60 for a pre-entry. Adult prices from R150 to R200.
