Entry is free but we require you to raise a minimum of R3,000 for the nominated beneficiaries. The sponsorship process is fully automated and it is surprisingly easy to raise the money.

Each participant will receive a race shirt (to be worn on Challenge Day), a timing chip, free passage on all downward cable car trips for the day and access to the athlete zone for refreshments.

Challenge Date:   Saturday 20 April 2024*
(An alternate date of Saturday 27 April 2024 will be used in the event of Cableway closure on Challenge Day)

The first ascent will begin at the starter arch at the lower cable station.  From there, participants will make their way along Tafelberg Road to the base of Platteklip Gorge and ascend via the demarcated footpath.  The lap will end at the Mobii timing station at the upper cable station.

From lap 2 onward, participants begin the ascent behind the refreshment tent up to the contour path, left towards Platteklip Gorge along the contour path.  Upon reaching the intersection of the contour path with the Platteklip Gorge footpath, participants ascend using the demarcated Platteklip Gorge footpath. Each lap is approximately 5.5km and will take about 1.5hrs to 2hrs to complete.

Entries are limited to 199 runners.
