Cape Town local ultra endurance runner Ryan Sandes, who came second in the 100km in 2017, says that UTCT is one of his favourite events on the global racing calendar: “It’s also really cool to see so many international runners coming to Cape Town to experience Table Mountain – its always such an exciting time of year for our Cape Town trail running community.”


The Ultra-trail Cape Town 100km, 65km and 35km take place on Saturday 30 November and the 21km is on Sunday 1  December. For more information on the races and routes, and how to support runners, visit
