WITH FRIENDS: Halloween Forest run
Only the brave may enter this night-time race! The annual Dirtopia Halloween Forest Night Run sees fit and costumed athletes and fun-runners trek through the forest at Muratie Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on Saturday, 31 October 2015. Runners can sign up for either a 10- or 5-km trot; both routes traverse a single-track and give participants ample opportunity for ghost spotting at one of the Boland Winelands’ oldest wine farms (its history dates back to 1685). Prizes will be awarded to the top three ladies and men, and runners stand a chance to win spot prizes in the lucky draws. What’s more, all finishers will get a Halloween surprise and a soft drink. Registration will take place on the day at the venue from 5:30pm, and the race starts at 7pm for the 10-km and 7:15pm for the 5-km. Get more info here.
