Heaven & Hell Mountain Marathon
23 September @ 06:00 - 24 September @ 17:00
The Heaven & Hell Marathon is intended to provide the ultimate mountain running challenge in Africa, and is not recommended as a Comrades qualifier!
Based at Alpine Swift Trails High Altitude Training Facility in the Rhodes area in the Southern Drakensberg, the race is run at an average altitude of 2 150 m and the route has everything a mountain runner looking for the ultimate challenge could hope for – extremely steep gradients, ridiculously technical wilderness terrain, multiple crossings of the famous Bell River, multiple peak summits, pristine mountains and spectacular scenery. A few sections of the ascents and descents will require scrambling and liberal use of grass tufts as handholds!
