Oorlogskloof Mountain Run 2013

There’s no other trail run in SA (or the world) quite like Oorlogskloof. This race – part of the SPUR Country Classics Series presented by Quantum Adventures – will bomb you past herds of mountain zebra and troops of giant baboons, tunnel you into the very core of the earth as you navigate craggy sandstone cracks and Gollum-deep grottos, or traverse the plunging escarpment looming above the desolate Knersvlakte far below. OLK 2013 was a race of extremes, with soaring temperatures and ever-changing botanical biomes, and anyone who ran the gruelling course will surely be back for another Northern Cape fix next year.
