5 August 2023: Merrell Whale of Trail 53km and 35km

Treat yourself to a premier race event this year.

South Africa’s iconic five-day Whale Trail hiking route is offered as a challenge to runners capable of embracing all 53km and 1900m elevation as a TRAIL RUNNING ULTRA, packed with spectacular mountain fynbos, technical rocky ridgelines, sandy beach stretches and endless, mind-blowing, beautiful vistas all in one day.

It has become a must-do for those who have already tackled the more conventional runs out there and bragging rights on this one are substantial!

The Merrell Whale of Trail event is the only opportunity each year for a limited number of nature-loving athletes to run hard on this trail while treading lightly on the earth.
