Fairtree Capital has supported the Simonsberg Trail system for more than a year and one week after the mountain bike stage race, the inaugural Trail Run two-day event will take place on 11 & 12 Febr 2017. The event will start and finish at Delvera farm where runners will be treated to breakfast and lunch, kiddies entertainment and a wonderful area to relax after their run, with showers and massage service. Two routes will be on offer for the two-day stage race, the long route being around 25km and the other a 12km route for both Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday 12 Febr another route has been added for fun – all welcome to join the 7km route on the last day.
The Fairtree Contour events have been created to continue the development of routes and expose the incredible network of single-track trails on the Simonsberg Mountain. With over 25km of mountain single-track, connecting more than 10 wine estates, the region is set to become a hotspot for mountain bike trail riders.
Dirtopia has spent the last 3 years developing new routes on Delheim and Muratie wine estates. These trails are now operated in partnership with the landowners and the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy being the primary beneficiary. The conservancy represents more than 20 farms around the mountain and is currently focused on a multi-million rand alien clearing project to return large tracts of the mountain to fynbos and renosterveld.
There is no better time to be out in the winelands as harvest season will be in full swing in surrounding vineyards.

Good refreshment stations will be fully stocked with cold drinks and a wide range of savoury snacks and fruit.
