'Om Die Dam' Ultra Marathon (Hartbeespoort Dam)
When: Dates to be confirmed
We regret, the dates for this event have not yet been confirmed with us. Our apologies for any inconvenience. Event organiser please contact us with the date for this event.
Route Type: Circular: You run the first few kilometres alongside the dam and through the tunnel. Then you climb over Commando Nek. This is early in the race and should not pose any problems. From the top it is easy going as you cross the bridge over Hartbeespoort Dam. This is always a very beautiful stretch as the sun is rising by this stage. Then you have a steady climb through Broederstroom past Pelindaba. Here it can be very hot but the organisers go out of their way to assist you by having excellent water tables that offer all sorts of refreshments, such as fruit, ice lollies and even very miniature wors rolls! Then, just like that famous race in the Cape, comes the mighty challenge at about 38km when you have to climb over Saartjiesnek. You may be forgiven if you think this is Constantia Nek, because the feeling is just the same. At the top you are rewarded with a panoramic view of the dam and the town below. It is run in March in the North West, so be warned: it can get hot and you must drink! You run the 21.1km route around the suburbs of Hartbeespoort. You will find it flat, easy and fast.
Please Note: Dates for this event to be confirmed.
