“2018 will be a big celebratory year for the AfricanX Trailrun,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “Not only will we celebrate the event’s 10th anniversary, but after five action-packed years in Grabouw we’re excited to move venue for a second time, this time welcoming the magnificent Boschendal Wine Estate as the new home of AfricanX.”


“Firmly nestled in the Cape Floral Kingdom, Boschendal is renowned for its beauty,” continues Meyer. “Its backdrop of sweeping mountain ranges, deep ravines and imposing peaks will guarantee a trail running experience like no other. AfricanX runners can look forward to new trails and new challenges, but the same awesome AfricanX vibe. We have a few more exciting innovations planned, but are not yet ready to let the cat out the bag. For now trail runners are encouraged to secure their entries and prepare for a trail running experience like no other.”


“The AfricanX Trailrun is one of the highlights on our event’s calendar,” says Bianca Grobbelaar, Marketing Manager: Boschendal Wine Estate. “The event is ideal for the adventure seeker that thrives on an active lifestyle, whilst enjoying some well-deserved timeout in nature with family and friends. Boschendal boasts with the majestic Simonsberg Mountain as a backdrop. Runners can look forward to breath-taking scenery, encountering our friendly ‘Black Angus’ cows on route, indulging in healthy, wholesome meals and tasting our award winning wines. The perfect event where lasting memories are made, the AfricanX Trailrun should be on every trail runner’s bucket list.”
