MEDICAL

We have partnered to bring you onsite medical care at the start and finish line.

Should you need assistance on the route - please alert one of our marshalls or waterpoint volunteers.

EXCLUSIVE TRAIL

Neighbouring farmers have opened up their land to allow the 35km route to pass through segments of their unblemished, private game farm where animals roam, further adding to the exclusivity of the event as these trails will not be publicly accessible outside of race day.

HYDRATION

There will be 3 waterpoints conveniently placed along all 3 routes, however, it is mandatory that runners doing the 35km, run with their own hydration packs and extra nutrition. We recommend that runners participating in the 21km do the same.

COURSE DETAILS

COURSE DESCRIPTION

All 3 races will start at the same point, staged for the advanced to lead the way, novices to follow, from the Village Square to the iconic Titanic Rock - hence the name Titanic Challenge.

The runners will be split at certain points to accommodate the different distances of 10, 21 and 35 kms.

While the Conservancy is limited to trails that amount to over 25km, neighbouring farmers have opened up their land to allow the 35km route to pass through segments of their unblemished, private game farm where animals roam - thus we are able to offer 14km of previously untouched trails to the public, further adding to the exclusivity of the event as these trails will not be publically accessible outside of race day.
