Running Events in the Western Cape

There are plenty of runs planned for the rest of the year, so keep your takkies and this overview at hand

It’s no secret that the people of Cape Town and the Western Cape are incredibly active and involved when it comes to outdoor sports and leisure activities. So we’ve created an overview of the major running events scheduled for the rest of 2017, and now you can diarise them and make sure you register before the spaces are filled up.

Trail running is becoming more and more popular and Capetonians arrive in droves to take part in these scenic runs which show off the best vistas of our picturesque province. However, with so many trail runs taking place we have had to select only a few for this overview. The rest can be found by visiting the various websites in the overview.

We’ve categorised the events for the rest of 2017 by date so you can quickly and easily plan your life to accommodate your hobby.
