Traverse gets a new name and venue

Formerly known as the Goukamma Traverse, the Rondevlei Traverse will take place on 31 March 2018 in the Cape Dune Molerat Trail on the outskirts of Wilderness, part of the Wilderness section of SANParks.

In the past the Traverse formed an integral part of the annual Sedgefield Slow festival, and will be taking place over Easter Weekend, despite the cancellation of the 2018 Slow Festival.

The 2018 edition of the Traverse not only boasts with a new name, but also with a new venue.

The Goukamma Nature Reserve is still in a recovery phase after the devastating fires of June 2017, and the decision was taken to move the Traverse to Rondevlei in order not to disturb the recovery process of the Goukamma Reserve.

Situated on the outskirts of Wilderness, the trail overlooks Rondevlei and offers spectacular views of the lakes area of Wilderness. The Cape Dune Molerat trail offers a large variety of fynbos, bird and aquatic species and was recently proclaimed as a RAMSAR site, one of only 2,301 around the world.

Athletes and their supporters will be treated to spectacular views of Swartvlei from the start / finish, which will be at Lakeside Lodge, a five star establishment on the shores of Swartvlei.

Karl Pietersen, general manager of Lakeside Lodge said, "We're very excited to be hosting the event at our lodge. It's the perfect setting to host an outdoor event and we'll be adding a few Easter trail running specials to our menu for the day for all who are hungry. We have also sponsored two lucky draw prizes; 2-night stays for 2 people sharing with a 2-course dinner and breakfast."

Registration for the 16km run takes place from 07:15 to 08:15. The race starts at 08:30.

Registration for the 5km run takes place from 07:30 to 08:45. The race starts at 09:00.
