26 & 27 June'21 - Mid Year Trail Run @Muratie

Time Trial Trail Running weekend at Muratie 
Launched in 2015, the Dirtopia’s MidYear Trail Run has become an institution on the Muratie Wine Estate calendar. Celebrating the winter solstice, the event was designed to shrug off the winter chills and get outside in anticipation of longer days ahead.
Of course Covid happened, cancelling the 2020 edition and with recent lockdown restrictions the traditional event format cannot take place.

For the upcoming weekend (26 and 27 June) the following offering has been put in place:

1) There will be no mass starts. Runners can start any time from 08h00 and 12H00
2) Runners will self-time using  Trailtag and results will be live in realtime on trailtag.co.za
3) If you want to be timed you need to either rent or own a Trailtag.
4) A long and short route option will be marked out each day, with separated start and finish location at the Dirtopia Trail Centre.
5) Saturday’s routes are 7km and 11,5km and Sunday’s routes are 8,5km and 15,5km. Sunday’s routes includes some newly built trail not included in events before.
6) The Trail Centre will act as general “registration” and is open all morning for tag sales and rentals
7) On completion of your route, you’ll receive a medal.
8) The prizegiving will be virtual and lucky draws will occur ad hoc from the finish line.

Beginners that 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 station on the routes and one split between distances per day. 
A few lucky finishers will receive hampers of Sportsman’s Warehouse vouchers, Muratie wine or FALKE socks.
A coffee station with muffins available next to the start/finish at the Trail Centre, but if you like a sit-down meal, please call Muratie Farm Kitchen on 0218652330 to book a table. Breakfast from 9am until 10h45 and lunch from 12h00. Snacks 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 R220. Late entries R30 extra on the day.
