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, I was just wondering if there are any requirements if I want to run the 1Day 50km trail run.
    Do I have to qualify for it or can I just sign up?

  2. Hey Enver, the Challenge Race is 32km over two days. Approx 17km on Day One and 15km on Day Two. The One-day Only option is to run either one of the days only. Hope that makes sense. Regards, Warren

    1. Hi Warren,

      This is very misleading. As your website states ” one-day only challenge 32km day 1 OR day 2″.

      4 of us have enter with the understanding that it is 32km trail, run on either day 1 or day 2.

      Please confirm.

      1. Hey Russell,
        Nope it is EITHER Day One OR Day Two. This is the excerpt from the website (under Race Info):

        Runtheberg 2021 One Day ONLY

        Entrants will have the option to enter One Day ONLY at a reduced Entry Fee. Entrants will be able to select from either Day One or Day Two only of either the Extreme or the Challenge. One Day ONLY Entry Fees do NOT include a free Race Shirt but will allow the option for purchase. One Day ONLY options are not available for Runtheberg Lite

        Runtheberg Extreme One Day ONLY (Day 1 OR Day 2)

        Entry Fee – R1200
        Runtheberg Technical Race Shirt – R350

        Runtheberg Challenge One Day ONLY (Day 1 OR Day 2)

        Entry Fee – R900
        Runtheberg Technical Race Shirt – R350

        Hope that helps.

  3. Please give more detail on the Challenge event if you do it over 2 days – I can’t seem to find much info. Thanks
