RTV 2024 #6 presented by First Ascent @ Val Du Charron
Sat 1 Jun 2024 @ Paarl, Western Cape

Onsite Events

On the 1st of June 2024 we will host our 6th event on the Run The Vines calendar for the 2024 Series at Val Du Charron Wine and Leisure Estate near Wellington. The original planned date was the 3rd of June but the event was postponed due to the bad weather that was predicted for the weekend.

With its unmistakable mountain views, the award-winning Val du Charron Wine and Leisure Estate is situated in the picturesque Bovlei, ten minutes from the town of Wellington and under an hour’s drive from Cape Town. With a history of winemaking dating back to 1699 Val du Charron’s wines are available worldwide but are best enjoyed surrounded by the vineyards themselves at one of the Estate’s restaurants or from your own balcony at the 4 star Guesthouse or 5 star Coach house suite.

This year we will also be celebrating the start of our 10-year celebrations in March.  We are also proud to announce that First Ascent is now the main sponsor of our events. Other sponsors like 32Gi, Manzi Water Paarl, Peninsula Beverages and Echo Friend Rentals are again committed to 2024.

Run The Vines is a Trail Run series for the whole family. Young and old can enter and it is suitable for all fitness levels. Walkers are welcome on the 3km, 5km and 10km distances. Please do not walk the 17km distance.
