Savanna Origin of Trails Events to Take Place on Separate Dates

The organisers of the Stellenbosch-based Savanna Origin of Trails MTB and Trail Run Experience have announced that the events will boast separate dates this year.

The Trail Run Experience moves to 26 and 27 June, while the MTB Experience remains on the 27th and 28th of November.

“The Covid-19 restrictions limit the number of entries permitted at events,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “Attempting to host both a trail run and MTB event on one day would place further restrictions on the number of entries permitted per event. The split will enable us to welcome more trail runners and more mountain bikers to the respective events. The split will also enable us to focus our full attention on the trail running experience in June and the mountain biking experience in November.”

“We are also very excited to announce that the majestic Blaauwklippen Wine Estate will be the home of the Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience in June,” continues Meyer.  “One of the oldest wine farms in South Africa, Blaauwklippen Wine Estate is a popular tourist destination that has iconic trails. We are proud to include these trails as part of our 2021 route. After each stage trail runners can relax and take in the beauty of this magnificent region.  The well-known Blaauwklippen Market will also be in full swing on Saturday and Sunday.”

In addition, the Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience will host two training runs in the build-up to event day.  These runs will take place on 22 May at the Blaauwklippen Wine Estate and 12 June at Jonkershoek, and will be limited to 100 runners per event. For more information email
