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 of spectacular mountain fynbos, technical rocky ridgelines, sandy beach stretches and endless, mind-blowing, beautiful vistas in one day.
The Merrell Whale of Trail event is the only opportunity each year for nature-loving athletes to run hard on this trail while treading lightly on the earth.
For those who feel a little daunted by the full 53km Ultra, we also offer a 35km trail run covering two-thirds of the route.
For some, this is too taxing, too technical and too sublimely beautiful to blindly race at full speed. Both the trail and the environment demand one’s full presence and respect. And we at Mountain Runner Events enjoy hosting anyone who can appreciate that as much as we do. So, we are happy to now be able to offer the Merrell Whale Journey to tie in with the race event.
Keeping it personal and keeping it pristine.
