Description: Come experience this exclusive opportunity to run on the 5 day Whale Trail hiking route and fantastic vibe at the finish area, in peak whale watching season.

Starting in Potberg the runners will run through indigenous fynbos seeing Proteas and Erica’s in abundance.

When they finally reach the end of the trail in De Hoop Nature Reserve, they will be filled with a peace and a sense of accomplishment for having completed a trail made in heaven.
