New WAY2WINE Trail Run & Wine Extravaganza in the Bottelary Hills

Thursday, 31 October, 2013
Pimp up your trainers and head for the Winelands for the 1st ever WAY2WINE Trail Run & Wine Extravaganza and discover some of the best kept secrets of the Bottelary Hills on the outskirts of Stellenbosch on Saturday, 9 November 2013.
This brand new 12km Trail Run and Wine Tasting Run/Walk will take you along a scenic vineyard route and uncover some of the most beautiful hidden wine farms the Bottelary area has to offer.
While the more amped trail runners race through this new circular vineyard route with ample water stations along the way, the not-so-athletes who are unlikely to get a prize for breaking a sweat, can impress the judges with their creativity by dressing up. The best dressed wine lover will be richly rewarded by winning their weight in wine from participating estates.
Both the serious Trail Run and the more relaxed Wine Run/Walk start and finish at Hazendal with the route making its way through the vineyards of Kaapzicht, Mooiplaas, Fort Simon, Goede Hoop and Groenland.
With a wine stop every 2km, and a festive atmosphere at each new farm, this is an event for all the fun seeking, wine loving adventure enthusiasts out there. So gather your family and friends or round up your colleagues for a great office team building day and great year end bash.
To enable wine lovers to taste the wines and linger at the cellars, there will be a staggered start from 08h30 onwards. The more serious participants who will be racing against the clock will start at 08h00.
Be sure to have your credit card handy as participants can purchase wines en route at the cellars for collection at the finish at Hazendal where a festive market crammed with stalls, live music, and lucky draws galore await all finishers.
Crèche facilities at Hazendal, offering supervision and a secure indoor play area, will be available at R20 per kid to ensure that all parents can take part in the festivities of the day.
The Trail Run and Wine Tasting costs R220 whilst the Trail Run without the wine tastings for more serious participants costs R100 per person.
