The Leopard Run is a three day “hippy” trail run through the remote Kouga Mountains in the heart of the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve. Expect technical mountain running, hearty food sourced from the local Baviaans farms and a long weekend without the distractions of technology.
Run the Leopard Trail; a beautiful track through the remote Kouga Mountains where the extent of your concerns with the modern world is the battery life of your GPS running watch. The three day trail run boasts a hippy vibe, with hearty South African meals prepared from locally produce setting the tone for a long weekend of eco-friendly living.
The weekend will kick off with a prologue, which can be undertaken from 8am to 4pm on the Friday. The 10 kilometre long prologue or “kloofing” route requires swimming and a scramble or two in order to reach the Cedar Falls waterfall and fill your Leopard Run bottle.
Stage 1, which takes place on the Saturday, is the big mountain day. 34 kilometres of scintillating mountain running through diverse landscapes of high passes and narrow gullies awaits the Leopard Run adventurers.
The third and final stage, on the Sunday, the flow of mountain meadows day, features a 23 kilometre long route; the option of a further kilometre of scenic detours. It provides a fitting end to the weekend’s mountain running with a mix of easily traversable and technical trails.
Come immerse yourself in the ancient landscapes and warm hospitality of the Baviaanskloof. Come run the Leopard Run and follow the spoor!
