The PUFfer Trail Run is a grueling ultramarathon from Cape Point to the Waterfront in Cape Town. It takes place on the 17th of August 2019.
This is arguably the most scenic ultra marathon in South Africa. It is also the toughest. In addition to the harsh terrain, there may be extreme weather conditions. If so, it is mandatory to have a compass, rainwear and maps before being allowed onto Table Mountain. In the interests of safety, all participants who do not reach Constantia Nek by 13h00 will be removed from the race. This is done to ensure that no one is stranded on the mountain after dark. The first 30 kilometres are run on tar, with the balance on unmarked tracks and trails.

How to Enter?
Entries are limited to 140 with a waiting list for new entries. Previous finishers get priority but forfeit future preference if they do not compete. Selection from the waiting list is on the basis of merit, luck and motivation. The selection committee insists on a bottle of red wine when you are accepted for the first time. This elaborate process begins in early March.
