If you are still at school and love trail running, then make sure you get your entries in to run the first MaxiRace Schools Trail Championships, Presented by AlpasFit Trail Coach and hosted by MaxiRace Cape Winelands, which will be taking place on Saturday 30 September 2023.
“We are passionate about growing the sport of trail running with the youth, especially as South Africa has a well-established history of producing some of the best trail runners in the world,” says founder of AlpasFit Trail Coach and MaxiRace Cape Winelands, Landie Greyling. “The race is a great opportunity for school kids who love trail running to get out there and show us their talent!”
The race takes place at the Maxi Vagabond Race Village at Hoërskool Stellenbosch on Saturday 30 September 2023, as part of the annual MaxiRace Cape Winelands event, features a 7km route with 4 different categories that our young runners can enter– Solo Girls u19, Solo Boys u19, Solo Girls u15 and Solo Boys u15. The athletes must be a registered scholar at the school they are representing, and u15 contestants must be at least 14 years old or turning 14 in 2023.
“We have decided to include a charity option in the MaxiRace Schools Trail Championships, where entrants can pay the entry for a child who is not able to afford an entry,” explains Greyling. “We want to give all kids who would like to run this event a chance to take part!”
