Matroosberg Trail Challenge

Written by Michael Gombart Tuesday, 28 October 2014 Posted in Reviews

Matroosberg Private Nature reserve is one of those unique places that should be on your list of places to see.  Situated only 35kms outside the beautiful town of Ceres and 160km from Cape Town CBD.

There are plenty activities on offer, hiking, trail running, mountain biking, quad biking, fishing and 4x4ing. In winter when the snow arrives, with great skiing and winter wonderland appeal.

The reserve stands at 1100m above sea level and the peak of the Mountain lies at 2249m above sea level, and offers a fairly untouched landscape.

The good folk at running the cape, being trail and mountain running purists saw the opportunity to have a race here and so the Matroosberg Trail Challenge was born.

Clanwilliam Freshpak Fitness Festival – 4 October

With Clanwilliam being such a popular getaway destination – with its superb  dam and surrounding campsite, and add in the fact that October brings in the start of summer, with invariably  some very warm conditions, who wouldn’t have wanted to head for Clanwilliam for the  weekend? Better yet, the folks at Freshpak and Tridusport have excelled themselves at organizing and running the Clanwilliam fitness festival, offering open water swims, a “fit kids” competition, as well as triathlon, duathlon and biathlon events.
