Event Description

The Merrell Whale of Trail is a 53km UltraTrail Run that takes place 18 August 2018, from De Hoop Nature Reserve (Western Cape).

Starting in Potberg the runners will run through indigenous fynbos seeing proteas and ericas in abundance. They will cross rivers and run atop ridgelines before running onto the rocky shores of the Indian ocean. The trail will snake along stunning paths that drift from the beach into coastal forests and along fynbos-covered hills. Runners will experience breathtaking views and possible sightings of the Southern Right whale. When they finally reach the end of the trail in De Hoop Nature Reserve, they will be filled with a peace and a sense of accomplishment for having completed a trail made in heaven.
