This second year featuring a new route and a new start/finish at the glamorous new Table Bay Mall, closer and easier to get to with ample parking. 

The West Coast Athletic Club in partnership with the Friends of Blaauwberg Conservation Area and Table Bay Mall are organising the Battle Up Blaauwberg Hill Trail Challenge event on Saturday 30th September 2019, with two distances – 10km & 16km options. 

Blaauwberg Conservation Area (BCA) is one of over 30 natural areas managed by the City of Cape Town. The BCA was proclaimed a Local and Provincial Nature Reserve in 2007.

The reserve has a spectacular view, down Fynbos slopes, across the city to 7km of rocky, sandy coastline, the ocean and beyond – it’s the only viewpoint in the world from which you can see two proclaimed world heritage sites (Table Mountain and Robben Island).
