Presenter’s Overview

 

For those who have done the marathon, don’t you think it’s time to test your feet for an ultra-marathon? And for those who simply love the outdoors, a 15- and 30-kilometer category awaits you.

 

The route is generally runner-friendly, having a rolling but mostly flat terrain (single and double track dirt roads), and only around 5% will consist of concrete roads. This route offers reprieve from constant pounding on hard surfaces. It is an out and back course with the start and finish lines situated in the vicinity of The Fields Clubhouse. The course will bring runners to the peripheries of the NUVALI complex which will offer participants majestic views that only nature and NUVALI can offer.
