Laborie Paarl Rock Trail Run this Saturday

Wednesday, 10 October, 2012
Attention all running enthusiasts! Make your way to the picturesque Laborie Wine Farm this Saturday for the annual Paarl Rock Trail Run event, in conjunction with the Drakenstein Municipality. Situated in the heart of the Paarl Winelands, Laborie is surrounded by vineyards set against the majestic Paarl Mountains.
Two distances will be offered from the farm onto the iconic Paarl Rock Reserve. Route choices on the day include a 20km lung and quad buster, and a 9km introduction into trail running with some fairly challenging climbs and great views. All entrants will receive a complimentary bottle of Laborie wine. For more information on the trail run as well as costs and how to enter, visit

Upon your return to the farm take a leisurely stroll through the popular Laborie Lazy Days’ Market, which will be open from 9am until 2pm. With the primary focus of the market on fresh produce, which includes freshly baked breads, coffee, cheese, olives, honey, charcuterie, there is something for everyone from food stalls to arts and craft stalls, as well as ample kiddies’ entertainment. Stock up at this shoppers’ delight on all things delicious and enjoy good company, delectable food and superb wines.

Adding to the day’s festivities as well as acknowledging Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ladies can look forward to participating in two fun filled events on the day – a fun walk and boot camp. Entry to both events which start at 9am is free, and participants are required to dress in pink,. Toast your accomplishment with a complimentary glass of Laborie Rosé with prizes awarded to the best dressed. Add to your fitness attire and pop into the hair and nail bar on site, before the race, to have a pink ribbon painted on your nails or a splash of pink sprayed into your hair. All part of the day’s fun, but more importantly lending your support to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Laborie produces some of the best Methodé Cape Classic bubblies, an array of award-winning wines as well as an estate brandy. Visitors can overnight in the tranquil guest house and enjoy a delicious meal at the Laborie Restaurant.
