From the dark damp fissures of the world-renowned Cango Caves, to the snow packed peaks of the mighty Swartberg mountain range, this is the Dryland Traverse and it is a race like no other.
The four-day stage race, which showcases the classic trails of the Klein Karoo, has fast become a favourite on the South African running scene. It kicks off with an underground start in the world-famous Cango Caves (this is the only event that has permission to take runners through this area).
The stages ahead include traversing the mighty Swartberg Mountains – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, breathtaking views of the Great and Klein Karoo, and trails that run past the renowned Raubenheimer Dam.
There simply is no equal when it comes to the sense of achievement, setting and overall spirit of this event – the Rhodes Dryland Traverse is a must for every adventure-seeker!
