Challenging the Outeniqua Mountains, the Outeniqua Quest!
The TriSport team will be hosting the Outeniqua Quest for the second year around. The Outeniqua Quest is taking place from the 13-14 June 2015, in the Wilderness – Knysna area and it is definitely not one to miss!
Outeniqua Quest gives you a chance to run (or walk, for the fast walkers) the full Outeniqua Hiking Trail either non-stop (yes, the full 108 km in one shot) or over 2 days. The Outeniqua Trail officially start at the Beervlei hut, close to Wilderness and finish at the Hakerville hut, close to Hakerville. You get to spend running in the beautiful mountains and through the indigenous forests, on an internationally popular hiking trail. The Hiking Trail normally take up to 7 days to complete, but we are giving you a chance to challenge yourself and run the trail as fast as you can, or you can do it over 2 days.
The various race options to choose from include a Non-Stop option, where athletes will run the full 108km of the Outeniqua Hiking Trail in one go without sleeping over, a 2-day Ultra Trail Run option where athletes will sleep over halfway at Millwood and therefore do the Outeniqua Hiking Trail over 2 days, or for those who are looking for a shorter option, there is a Lite Quest, where athletes will be able to run only 49km to the half way mark at Millwood. For the extremist, we have added an additional 24km from Harkerville to a 132km overall event.
The event is a solo event, but of course, you are more than welcome to bring friends or family along. If you feel like cheering your friends on running this race or to keep in the loop, please follow the TriSport FB page on www.facebook.com/trisportsa.
The event will start from the Wilderness Hotel, 13 June 2015 and ends at Harkerville the next day. More info on the event, at https://trisport.co.za/trievent/outeniqua-quest/
