Put on your best costume and dare to explore Muratie’s Forest singletrack during Halloween evening that happens to be on a Full Moon this year!

Don’t be scared as you’ll be treated to fantastic singletrack...and live music from MixTape!
DATE: Saturday evening, 31 October 2020

VENUE: Dirtopia Trail Centre, Muratie wine estate, Knorhoek Road, R44 Stellenbosch
REGISTRATION: From 17h30 at Dirtopia Trail Centre

DISTANCES & ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS: The short distance are designed to encourage newcomers and walkers to participate in trail running and the longer distance have more flowing singletrack with a reward of magnificent Winelands views, Simonsberg in the background and Table Mountain in the distance.



5km – Short route runners will follow the same markers as the long distance to the ridge and ventral point at Gilloolys with a great view where you will find a water point. Head down the HoChiMihn singletrack forest and hope you make it back to Muratie.

10km – An extraloop after the refreshment station about half way at Gillooly’s. More forest singletrack = more time to be scared…

Be aware of unseen Halloween visitors, as legend has it that there are zombies in the forest.  REMEMBER: Yield for ghosts

START TIMES: With a window of starting between 18h45 & 19h15 for both the 10km and the 5km. Sunset is at approximately 19h15.
