The Oyster Catcher Trail Run is the ideal breakaway weekend for the whole family. Here you can escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy a weekend of trail running, magnificent views, fresh air and freedom along the Southern Cape coastline.

The Oyster Catcher trail run is primarily designed for trail runners looking to complete their first multi-day stage race. The distances covered are manageable and the terrain is made up mainly of single track (hiking trails) and beach running, with some technical areas to add variety. Due to the sensitivity of the area, a limited number of only 300 runners can enter each year, so don’t miss out!

New in 2019! This year sees the addition of a dedicated luxury tent race village and kids’ zone, situated at Boggomsbaai, the hub of the Oyster Catcher Trail Run. From here, runners will be bussed to and from starts and finish areas.
