New date to be announced for the 2015 Enid Pretorius Properties Trail Run and Walk!

Please note that the 2015 event will NOT take place on 9 August – a new date will be announced asap.  Online entries are closed for now. Click here to enter registration. The sixth annual Enid Pretorius Properties Women’s Day Trail Run and Walk will take place on Sunday, 9 August in and around St Francis Bay, starting at 09h00. The main distance of the day is 26km, but due to the popularity of the route, the organizers introduced a new half marathon (21km) as well as a 15km distance through the areas normally closed to the public, and a 5km on the St Francis Bay Golf Course for our parkrunners and walkers. “This is a walk to celebrate Women’s Day but runners and males are also welcome!” says organizer Eric Stewart. “We have introduced shorter distances to the original event as weather conditions on the day can change things into a challenge. We want everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful surrounds.” Participants will be transported to the 21km and 15km starting points just after the 26km kicked off. The main race starts at the St Francis Golf Course adjacent to the offices, and proceeds through the St Francis Golf Course en route to the St Francis Links. The first water point will be at the St Francis Links Service gate, where the 21km participants will be taken to for the start of this distance.The second waterpoint, on the Mostertshoek Road, will be the start of the 15km distance. No private vehicles will be allowed to enter the property, and participants will be dropped off together. The route will be along the Wild Side’s rocky shoreline. The third waterpoint will be at the Seal Point Lighthouse, from where runners and walkers will cross the Cape St Francis main beach and Shark Point to reach the fourth waterpoint at Port St Francis. They then will use the Two Harbours Walk route to get to the finish line at the Village Centre. The route will be well marked and participants will each receive a description of the route to accommodate both runners and walkers. Some sections could be technical, especially towards the end. Online entries can be done here on www.stfrancissport.co.za or collect your form from Enid Pretorius Properties in the St Francis Village Centre. Entry fee:   Adults Juniors (U17) 5 km R40 R20 15 km R60 R40 21 km R80 R60 26 km R120 R80 Entries are limited due to the sensitivity of the area.
