Montagu Mountain Mania Trail Run – 31 May 2014
This somewhat annual trail run of ours takes place in the picturesque mountains of Montagu and Robertson. It was a 22km circular race that consisted of technical sandy and rocky mountain trail running amongst fine fynbos. This journey depicts the climb to the summit of the mountain range.
On the 9km 800m elevation climb that takes us to that saddle and up to the right.
On the saddle heading up towards the 1196m summit we had our first view of the Robertson Wine Valley on the right and to the left the Langeberg Oos mountain range that divides Montagu from the valley – lovely single track!
Looking down into Montagu itself on the way to the summit
The ruggedness of the mountain is awesome!

…without it, what we do means nothing!
