What better way to celebrate the arrival of Spring than a run in nature?

 

Spring is one of the best times of the year for a trail run. The West Coast Flower Trail Run at !Khwa ttu offers the most colourful trail run where flowers are blossoming and creating gorgeous landscapes. Every trail consists of a combination of jeep tracks, gravel roads and single tracks.  These trails are surrounded by some of the West Coast’s most inspiring scenery featuring rolling hills covered in lush, green grass and breathtaking Atlantic ocean views.

 

Out on a nature run nothing beats sighting wild life on a beautiful Spring morning.  Runners on these trails always encounter herds of eland, zebra and hundreds of springbok. No matter what distance you complete, every route is scenic and passes through pristine nature.  Furthermore the routes offer a variety of thrilling surprises such as several waterholes, bird hides and even a replica traditional San village, not to mention a loo with a view. All this makes the West Coast flower run such a unique event. This is ideal for the special runner who wants more than just running on gravel roads and
jeep tracks.

 

Runners, walkers, young and old, all are welcome. There is a 5km, 10km and a 21km trail for the more serious runners. Dogs on a lead are welcome. The facilities for runners include built ablutions with hot showers, a restaurant, shop, West Coast food stands, coffee bar, free wifi, and secure parking – and exclusively for runners, a free game drive.

 

A special child minder will be available where professional San guides will present child friendly activities such as story-telling and a treasure hunt. This is available for kids of 6 years and older.

 

This event is jointly presented by I Love Yzer and !Khwa ttu.  They are passionate about the West Coast and creating new events and opportunities to experience and share the beauty of the region and its people
