Merrell Hobbit 100km Mountain Run 2013

Eastern Province

The Merrell Hobbit 100 (Amatola Trail Run), a 2 day staged trail run, is on the iconic Amatola Hiking Trail. The race starts at Maden Dam and ends in the magical Hogsback. You will run through the most magnificent indigenous forests, cross rivers and stand below huge waterfalls, and to top it off spend a night at Cata Mountain Hut. If the 100km seems too long, do not despair, this is an entire weekend of trail running with 38km 16km and 5km runs as well.

Ryno Griesel placed 1st in the 2013 100km race, setting another new record, beating his own 2012 record!
