VWS Nuweberg Trail Challenge
The inaugural VWS Nuweberg Trail Challenge 2018 is designed to test the mettle of avid trail runners and causal runners (and walkers) alike, as you traverse the slopes of the Hottentots Holland mountains. You will experience pristine Fynbos and breathtaking vistas as you navigate the trails we have chosen for you.
Run and organised entirely by Volunteer Wildfire Services volunteer wildland firefighters, all proceeds go towards the VWS, an entirely volunteer-run, non-profit organisation dedicated to the protection of biodiversity and the preservation of our natural heritage. We receive no official or municipal funding and all funds are used for operational and logistical expenses to fight the devastating wildfires. These finds are raised by our volunteers, via donations or events like this.
The challenge offers runners a chance to do two routes: 22km or 10km, with the race start and finish located in Grabouw from Cape Canopy Tours. Any donations are welcome and would be greatly appreciated. You can also purchase an awesome VWS Supporter buff to wear as a proud VWS supporter
You will traverse the pristine trails of the Hottentots Holland Mountains and experience firsthand the wonder of the Fynbos which sustains our mountain water catchment areas.
