VWS Race for Water 2017

Event Date: April 23 2017

Race for Water 2017 Edition - NEW VENUE!

This year we are proud to be supported by the Department of Agriculture at Elsenburg who have graciously offered the use of their facilities to host our event this year, for which we are most grateful!

We offer a 6km race which follows farm tracks on the slopes of Klapmutskop, and a tougher 14km which adds a network of flowing singletracks and vineyard trails on Klapmutskop. The routes are circular, starting and finishing at Elsenburg, and both courses offer stunning views from the Simonsberg to Cape Town.

Run and organised entirely by our firefighters, all proceeds go towards the VWS, an entirely volunteer-run, non-profit organisation dedicated to the protection of biodiversity and the preservation of our natural heritage. We receive no government funding. All funds are used for operational expenses to fight wildfires - and via donations or events like this. Any donations are welcome and would be greatly appreciated - they all help us battle too frequent wildfires and protect the wildland – urban interface.
