Volunteer Wildfire Services Trail Challenge 2017

Proudly Presented by the Hans Hoheisen Charitable Trust

This is probably the best way to start off your Mother’s Day, 14th May 2017. Come in early for a scamper on the best mountain in the country and win that special lady a really cool prize (there’s plenty of them)!

The 12th edition of the VWS Trail Challenge is open to test the mettle of avid trail runners (and walkers alike). Experience beautiful Deer Park, the slopes of Devils Peak and Table Mountain, overlooking the majesty of early morning Cape Town with BRAND NEW routes this year including the Table Mountain contour path..

The challenge offers runners a chance to do two routes: 20km or 10km. And this year the race will take you through some of the areas that have seen, firsthand, the destruction of wildfires that we helped combat and show why its so important for us to help protect 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. The race Start and Finish is located in Deer Park, Vredehoek.
