Helderberg Mountain Challenge 2017
August 20, 2017 @ 7:00 am
Not for the faint-hearted. This mountain challenge has everything to offer – forest, incredible fynbos, boulder hopping near the summit, narrow ridge line running, incredible views, tricky slopes and traverses below huge rock faces.
Don’t let the “short” distance fool you, the HMC is one of the toughest and most brutal trail runs out there. The climbing is relentless and the downhill at the end isn’t much reprieve either. Do not underestimate this one!
Cut-off times will apply.
The HMC forms part of the Mountain Challenge Series, together with the Jonkershoek Mountain Challenge (JMC) and the Marloth Mountain Challenge (MMC). Enter the Mountain Challenge Series and compete for the best overall time across all three races or simply run one or two of the races in the Series.
