Ragnar Trail Cape Town

May 23, 2020 - May 24, 2020

Disconnect from the city and log in to your inner wild for a weekend like no other.

Ragnar Trail Cape Town is the unique team relay experience that has you and seven mates running loops in the Hottentots Holland mountains and running wild in the campsite.
Run. Eat. Chill. Nap. Eat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

Your team runs three different trail routes, relay style, non-stop throughout the day and night and next day. That’s one person and one trail at a time with the Ragnar Village at Elgin Country Club and all its festivities as your central hub. You are finished when each teammate has completed all three different trail routes. There’s a 6km, a 7km, and a 9km loop, meaning you total a half marathon(ish) and altogether your team knocks off a 100 miler(ish)

Inbetween your loops, back home at Ragnar Village, you can rest your legs, hit up the food vendors, take in some tunes or a movie and relax with your team. Or get silly. Get dancing. Get yoga-ing. Get wet in the dam, play boardgames or stare at the stars. Less rules. More fun.

So gather your tribe. Your next running race just got GEES.

Looking to Up your Ragnar Challenge?

Sign up as an Ultra Team

For an even more challenging experience, try it as an Ultra Team.
Half the team members, double the distance. Four runners take on the whole course. So get ready for extra mileage, two servings of pizza, and even less sleep.

OR go Black Loop

If you’ve only got one friend and s/he’s also a badass, take on the BLACK LOOP RAGNAR.
As a team of 2 you run together, covering each loop once on Day 1 to get your team start position for Day 2. Camp at the Village, get some sleep (you’re gonna need it) and fly out the blocks the next morning to race the 21km mountainous Black Loop.
