Each year, we encourage runners to collect any litter washed out by the ocean or otherwise – even if it just a few small items. It all helps. 2 Bottles of wine to the individual/pair whom collects the most [quantity] and bring it to the finish line. As always, Quantum Adventures will also employ 3 x individuals a few days before the run to collect litter off the coast in the Soetwater/Witsand area for an entire day.
For male and female.

See at the bottom of this page – route maps. We will also make the GPS track available to entrants and send the gpx files via email, 1 week before the run or for those who are “All Trails” subscribers, the link to the route. There will be some manned check-points on route. We will also have manned, security at places such as the Kakapo wreck and the Crayfish factory areas.
No water tables – you must be self-sufficient. There are toilets at the start [bottom of the new boardwalk – courtesy and efforts by Project Noordhoeked ] off Longbeach, Kommetjie and the finish.
Basic route description:
- Share vehicles and park in the back streets near the Beach – please do not park at the Beach Car Park. There are regulars who use the beach during the morning and it is only fair to allow them their access. A warm up trot to the start will do you no harm.
- Starting at De Hoek, Noordhoek Beach. Passing Kakapo Wreck and across Kommetjie Beach.
- At the start of Board-walk veering off into Lighthouse Rd to the Light house – there will be a marshal, recording your number [CP1]
- Follow the red arrows and orange tags down Lighthouse road, toward the Lighthouse
- The left entrance/boom will take you past the Lighthouse. Look out for the small foot path down to the right [just before you reach the locked gates]
- Follow the path down to the rocky beach and turn left, behind/at the end of the fence and along the coast – basically “stay along the coast/DO NOT veer inland from this point.
- Along the beach/path all the way to Witsand beach, cross the beach onto the Strandloper trail which is a grassy, rocky trail starting at the end of Witsand beach.
- Exit the path in Misty Cliffs where the Marshal will indicate the route up and away from the beach/up the steps and onto the wide, gravel verge off the tarred section – this is a wide section of gravel. Stay on the “right side” of the road and on the wide gravel area.
- DO NOT run on the tar road.
