Old Mutual Two Oceans Trail Runs

April 19

Event Website…

Africa’s biggest running event and Cape Town’s most prestigious race also features one of the best Trail Runs anywhere in South Africa. The Old Mutual Two Oceans Trail Run (OMTOTR) boasts nestled pathways and dramatic landscapes through Newlands Forest to the lower slopes of Devil’s Peak and beyond. As such, OMTOTR is also acclaimed as one of the most scenic and spectacular Trail Runs anywhere in the world.

Trail Run participants start at the University of Cape Town (UCT) at the top of the celebrated Jammie Steps. From there, you’ll head to Newlands Forest, encountering an exciting and exacting route, whether you’re an adventurous beginner or more seasoned at tackling trails. Expect to encounter steep ascents, technical descents and everything in between!
