The SkyRun is an Epic Mountain run of 100km considered by many athletes to be the toughest Trail Run in South Africa. The event is made up of three options, the SkyRun Marathon, starts on the Sunday 6 am at balloch running a marked route of 42km all the way to Wartrail Country Club for the finish line you have 7 hours to complete the marathon. The SkyRun 65, a one day run, where you have from the start of the race to Midnight to complete. The big daddy of trail the SkyRun 100, where you start on Saturday morning at 4am and have until 10 am on Sunday morning to complete. The event takes place in November each year and is unique in that the event is self-supported and athletes must navigate themselves between the check points on the route. This is one of the few runs that is unmarked and un-supported and this is one of the reasons that it is considered to be such a challenge and a must for most serious trail runners. Entries are limited to 250 athletes for both events.
The 100km/65km runs is not recommended if you are a beginner trail runner, and proof of previous trail event finishes may be required. Rather opt for the Marathon run presented on the same weekend.
