Running with your fur kids.


Man’s best friend is a dog. If your dog is like a child in your house, this event is for you. This event is not about the race but about spending quality time with your fur kids and making new doggy friends. Bring your fur kid (or kids) for a FUN weekend running or walking on beautiful fisher man’s trails, along the Sea, in a Private Game Reserve, on jeep tracks and in a Beautiful area in the Garden Route. A Vet will be on site during the event.

Gourikwa Nature Reserve is a great venue to host this unique event and they kindly will allow us to stay in their accommodation with our fur kids. Rules will apply for the fur kids and their behavior in the chalets. Rules will also apply for the social behavior of your fur kids with the other dogs. Both days you will start and finish at Gourikwa Nature Reserve. Gourikwa has great chalets available, please book with them directly.
