Event Description

The Blueboost Winelands Marathon takes place on the 11th of November 2017, starting from Eikestad Primary School (Stellenbosch). Distance options: 5km fun run, 21.1km & 42.2km.

This is Helderberg’s showpiece, run on a beautiful undulating route through the winelands of Stellenbosch and Somerset West. The race starts next to the Markotter Sports Grounds in Stellenbosch, moves onto the Strand Road (R44) and follows the Polkadraai Road towards Kuils River for about five kilometres. These early stages are undulating but easy. At the Vlottenburg turn-off lies the biggest hill of the route, a four kilometre climb to the top of Vlaeberg, 160 metres above sea level. The following three kilometres down the Vlaeberg Road could tempt you, so be careful. Do not run too fast down this section; rather save your legs for the hilly second half of the route. Just past the 15-kilometre mark the route turns left into Vlottenburg Road and two kilometres further on turns right into Annadale Road. Here you run to the well known ‘Mooiberge Farmstall’ near the 22-kilometre mark. This seven kilometre stretch is undulating. From the farm stall, the race is run on the double carriage Strand Road, almost to the outskirts of Somerset West. The turning point is near the 29-kilometre mark, at the Steynsrust flyover, after which you wind your way back along the same carriageway. The route once again passes the ‘Mooiberge Farmstall’ and goes past Louw se Bos, the caravan park and onward to Stellenbosch. The hills are rolling and challenging in these final stages, so is the incessant oncoming highway traffic.


This event is a qualifier for the Two Oceans & Comrades Marathon.
