 January 2022:

Resolution Trail Run at Muratie and first Sunset Hike of 2022


It’s the new year and you have made your resolutions. But perhaps you have ‘cheated’ already? Two opportunities to get active in the outdoors on Muratie Wine Farm to celebrate the start of the new year: Resolution Trail Run on Sunday 16 January and Sunset to Full Moon Hike on Monday 17 January.


Presented by Sportsmans Warehouse, Dirtopia presents their first Trail Run of 2022 offers four distances, which caters for all levels of fitness:


The 7kmroute has wide singletrack on the ABC trail to Gilloolys, the view point where a refreshment station will help you back to the finish. The 12km  route will give you more of a work-out with more singletrack and extra loops than the short route.  Refreshment station at the look-out point that you’ll hit twice. Back to the finish via Ho Chi Mihn trail. A 15km route is for fit runners only, as the singletrack will climb to Bushtunnel with various trails bringing you back to the finish. A self-help water can about halfway and a refreshment station about 4km from the finish. We suggest runners take their own water too.


For serious trail runners only, the 20km will test your fitness at the start of the year! The singletrack trails are worth every step and the views magnificent. Carry your own water, although there will be stations along the way. Profiles on the website HERE.


All finishers will receive a medal and of course stand a chance to win prizes in the lucky draws with top quality socks from FALKE, Sportsmans Warehouse vouchers, and wine from the Muratie.  The routes will always have the Dirtopia signature singletrack trails, fully stocked refreshment stations with Powerade & fruit plus Coke at the finish line. 


Registration starts promptly at 06h15 at Dirtopia Trail Centre and the longest distance starts at 7am with other distances following with 10minute gaps. Walkers & children are welcome on the short distance and prizes will be awarded to top Male and Female participants in each distance crossing the finish line. Coffee station will be open from early morning and grab’n’go meals will be on offer here. Make sure to book breakfast/lunch at Muratie’s Farm Kitchen for sit-down meals.


Pre-entries can be done online at www.dirtpass.co.za until Thursday night, 13 January. Prices start at R150 to R300, while kids under 18 cost R60 online. Please note that all late entries, will be at an additional fee. Timing for all events will be done with Amarider Trail Tags. No tag, no time. Tags can be rented or bought on race day. Covid-protocols will be adhered to as always.


Hikers can celebrate the ‘new you’ by walking to the look-out point beneath Simonsberg the night before Full Moon on Monday 17 January from Muratie.  A wine station will be waiting at the picnic spot on the mountain, so that you can toast the sunset with spectacular views of the Winelands and Table Mountain in the distance. Bring your snacks, picnic blanket, torch and good walking shoes and fun spirits!


The hike can be done by children, as it is only 3.5km in total and hikers follow markers along the way. Bring the family for a last summer holiday activity before school starts!
