Vino De Montana Mountain Run - 3 Day Stage Run
Fri 13 Sep - Sun 15 Sep 2019 @ Paarl, Western Cape


Organiser
Onsite Events

On the 31st of December 2016 Lans Pepler (Owner of Onsite Events) walked up to the Italian Cross in the Miaspoort Hiking Trail  with some friends. The history of the cross intrigued him so much that he started planning a run to the cross.

After almost 2 years and lots of planning and meetings with all the relevant role players the inaugural Vino De Montana Mountain Run will now take place on the 13th, 14th and 15th of September 2019.  

The Vino De Montana will be an unique event that will include the proud history of the Italian Prisoners of War who built the original Du Toits Kloof Pass.

Day one will be a 5km prologue with a traditional braai afterwards to welcome everybody true South African style.

On stage 2 runners will make there way to the Italian Cross on top of the Huguenot Mountain Peak while running on some sections of the original Du Toits Kloof pass. As they enter the Miaspoort Trail a climb of 877m over 3km will await them. At the cross they will then traverse all along the crest of the Drakenstein Mountain back towards the Hawequa Scout Adventure Centre in Wellington. The dinner on day 2 will have an Italian theme to it to commemorate the proud tradition of the Italian POW that build the pass. +- 35km

Day 3 will take the runners to the top of Du Toits Kloof pass where they will turn left into the spectacular Hawequa Mountains where the route will meander through the mountains towards the Bains Kloof pass before heading down to base camp at the Scout Centre. +- 30km.
