Start / Finish and Race Village

The Race Village is centered at the All Out Adventures Adventure Centre. This will be where we will have Registration on Friday afternoon (and Saturday morning for some), the official Race Briefing on Friday evening, the Start for Day Two, and the Finish on both days. The one exception is the Start on Day One – this will take place at The Cavern. We will be providing a shuttle transfer service from the Race Village to The Cavern for the Start on Day One, so as with everything else, you just need to get yourself to All Out Adventures. For those driving themselves, there is parking at the Race Village, so you will be finishing at your car. For those being dropped off, there is absolutely NO parking at or near The Cavern, and we strongly recommend that all drop-offs happen at All Out Adventures. For those of you lucky enough to be staying at The Cavern, you can literally roll out of bed to the Start. Similarly for those staying on the doorstep of The Cavern at Sungubala and The Ledges. You guys will in fact end up at the Finish without your cars, so please be aware of that. There will NOT be an official shuttle from the Finish back to The Cavern, but as has been the case in previous years, it should not be difficult to source a lift if needed. Please note that exact Start times will be communicated before the Race.

Registration

Registration will take place at All Out Adventures on Friday afternoon 1st October 2021 from 15h00 – 18h00, where you will register and receive your race pack and race number. There will be a small Registration facility at All Out Adventures on Saturday morning for those people who absolutely cannot make it the day before – times for this will be communicated closer to the Race. The main Race Briefing will be held at All Out Adventures on Friday at 18h00 until about 18h30.

Start Times

Day One
Extreme – 07h00
Challenge – 08h00
Lite – 09h00

Day Two
Extreme – 06h30

Cut-off Times

In the interests of runner safety and to ensure that no runners risk being stuck out in the mountains in the dark, the Runtheberg Race Organisers will be applying a strict Cut-off policy. For both Challenge and Extreme Races an both Day One and Day Two runners need to be through the final Checkpoint / Water Table by no later than 15h00. Any runners not through by that time will be transported back to the Race Village.

    1. Hi Charmaine, apologies for the delayed reply – too much mountain air! The Extreme is 50km in total (25km + 25km) and the Challenge is 32km in total (17km + 15km). Please check out The Trails page here for much more detailed info. Shout if you have any further questions to info@runtheberg.co.za. Regards, Warren.

    1. Hi Jacquie, usually but not this year. With the number limitation the event just can’t afford it 🙁 Regards,
      Warren
