WHAT IS THIS?
A series of unique “training races” on Cape Town trails, testing various aspects of running (like downhill, VK, TT etc), limited to a field of only 35 runners. Think of this as the “F1 of trail-running” in that we’re trying to purposely create an intricate system of ways to earn (and lose) points throughout a calendar year, by aving runners like you take part in as many of the race within each series.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
“A year long, multi-race, point-based championship”. On the day, each race will operate much like a standard race with start/finish, timing etc. Interested runners must qualify to participate by setting a time along the entire course, before a specific closing date. The mechanism used for the qualification process is Strava, and 70% of the total field will be determined in this manner – working from the top down of a segment leaderboard. Invites will be extended by the organizers at our discretion and based upon any nominations we receive.
