Mont Rochelle SkyRace® starts in the famous Cape wine growing region of Franschhoek.
The race is a Cape Classic and has been a firm favourite on the trail running calendar. We've switched up the route direction and the race date has moved to Mid September to align with a more wintery feel. Snow could be greeting runners as they head towards Perdekop (1575m) the highest peak on the route.
The race starts with a relentless climb from the town to Du Toits Peak (1419m), from there it's a fast flowing descent into the valley to the Aid station at Uitkyk before another climb with runnable sections to Perdekop, from Perdekop it's time to lock in those downhill legs for a long and technical at times descent into the town and finish in Franshoek.
