Runtheberg 2 and 3 October 2021


Two days of spectacular trail running in the heart of Africa’s mightiest mountain range, the majestic Drakensberg. The challenging but accessible 32km of the Runtheberg Challenge and the exhilarating, gruelling and, well, extreme 50km of the Runtheberg Extreme offer up an extravaganza of mountain single-track trails comparable with anything the world has to offer. This is Mountain Running at its wild and wonderful best!

With a wide variety of convenient accommodation to choose from, ranging from wilderness camping with world class facilities to family fun to backpacker-basic to romantic luxury, build the Race Weekend to suit YOU!

All this, coupled with the now legendary Race Village situated at the Northern Berg phenomenon that is All Out Adventures, sharing the trails with some of the country’s top trail runners, and the most sought after race shirts in the sport, have cemented Runtheberg as South Africa’s premier 2-Day Mountain Running Stage Race.

  1. Hi, is there a possibility of having an option of running the 25km extreme on day 1 and then the Challenge 13km on day 2?

    1. Hi Matthew, sorry for the very delayed reply – too much mountain air! Unfortunately we don’t have that as a formal entry option, but we’d suggest entering with a regular Extreme entry, and if you do decide that you only want to run the Challenge on Day Two we can downgrade you on the line (we’re guessing you might not decide that 🙂 ) Hope that helps. Feel free to shout with any more questions.

  2. Please advise:
    ….now that Actual Race has been officially cancelled, will Entry fee already paid be used towards covering the Virtual Race entry fees…?
    Awaiting your Reply,
    Thank you

    1. Hi Rupert,
      Replied directly. As things stand Runtheberg 2020 has definitely not been cancelled. But see your email for more details.

  3. Please confirm is run the berg continuing or is it only for local runners and virtual for the rest? How would it work for podium athletes?

  4. Hi’
    I have just entered for Schalk Claasen and Maretha Claasen.
    The payment system is however not working. Please keep my registration till it is possible to make a credit card payment.

    1. Hey Tiffany, It’s 13km in total over the two days. Approximately 7.5km and 5.5km. No age requirements. Parents / guardians must just enter and sign the disclaimers on behalf of minor entrants. Hope that helps. Regards, Warren
