Montagu Mountain Mania

Montagu Mountain Madness allows you to experience a trail run or mountain bike race in the beautiful mountains of Montagu. Make a weekend of it, and enjoy Montagu wines, dried fruit and free access to the famous hot springs for the weekend to soothe those aching muscles.

All the events start and finish at the Avalon Springs Hotel in Montagu.

Asics X-treme Trail Runs: 4km, 10km, 17km
Montagu Mountain bike races: 15km, 40km, 60km

Trail Runs

Both 17km and 10km courses comprise awesome single loops of mountain trails located within the Montagu Mountain Reserve. Both runs starts from the Avalon Springs Hotel, weave through Badkloof Gorge and follow the Cogmans Hiking Trail.

The 17km Trail run is rocky and technical in places so be prepared to forfeit your PB on this one! Read my 2010 race review for more information!

The 10km is a lovely trail run for the “not so X-treme ones”.

The 4km Fun run is through Badskloof Gorge and back. A lovely run / walk for everyone.
