ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS: Slightly different run route for Dirtopia with a nice flat warmup section of about 2km on gravel road and a bit of tar before heading into some proper hills and the vineyards on the southern slopes of Paarl Mountain.
The 11km route has some proper climbs and is not recommended for beginners while the 6km has just enough climbing to make you realise you probably need to train more.
Both routes offer beautiful views over Suider-Paarl and Simondium from some unique vantage points.
GENERAL INFO: A medal to all finishers! The refreshment station on route will have Powerade, water, fruit & jellys and coke to all finishers. Simonsvlei will be ready with coffee from early morning and have something to eat afterwards. The weekly Vleimarket at Simonsvlei will start at 09h00 and end at 15h00, free entry to all.
