Wild Coast Wild Run

A three-day trail run for a limited number of people, the Wild Coast Wild Run is regarded by those who run it as so much more than ‘just’ a trail run. The event has been running since 2009 and explores the isolated beauty of the Transkei beaches, its green rolling hills, and the friendly nature of the locals.

 

It’s marketed as a three-day boutique running holiday in the midst of unfenced coastal paradise.

 

The event usually covers the distance between Kei Mouth and Hole-in-the-Wall, an unmarked route of 112 km divided into daily distances of 44.2 km, 35.2 km and 34 km over a mixed terrain of beach, grassy headlands, coastal forest and rock. There are a few river crossings thrown in for good measure (yes, you will need to swim). Read more
