The Swellendam Hiking Trail was revered in South Africa's as the number one wilderness mountain trail, a true six-day mountain wilderness experience through the magnificent Swellendam Mountains. The hallowed ground is now the setting for this iconic and brutally tough trail run. This is your chance to experience pure mountain running nirvana. 87% of the epic 55km race is on remote mountain hiking trail and, with 3494m of vertical height gain over the entire distance, is not for the inexperienced solo mountain runner.
The 55km Marloth Mountain Challenge Ultra Skymarathon is a qualifying race for The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc and will give you one point toward qualification. It is also part of the SA Skyrunner Series and is the only ultra on South Africa soil that forms part of the Skyrunner Series.
Entries Open: February 2017
