Dusk till Dawn Night Trail
This event aimed at giving trail runners the opportunity to run and train at night. The course consists of a 12 km loop with 450 m of climbing that has to be run as many times as possible – from Dusk till Dawn! Sounds like FUN!
This loop is entirely on York’s property so this will give inexperienced runners a controlled environment in which to explore their own limits and push beyond what they think is possible – perfect for Ultra training!
The loop will start with a sharp drop from the Camp site via the XC Course with an undulating section to the Downhill Track via a 500m tar road. The ‘Verigo’ trail is a steep 3 km section climbing approximately 400 m to summit the Klein Spitskop Radio Towers. The 4 km drop down via ‘The Sweetest Thing” trail will be fast and brutal on the quads. The last 2 km will be a flat open forestry road ending in a short relatively steep climb (50 m) and a quick single track drop into the Camp Site. An aid Station with great vibe will be at the 4.5 km mark at the top of Spitskop right through the night.
