Montagu Mountain Mania Trail Run – 31 May 2014

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 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!
