Cascadia 12. Brooks’ most versatile and beloved trail shoe is now even better. Brooks refined the stability system to be more flexible, allowing you to feel more agile on the trail without sacrificing the cushioning and protection you’ve come to love from the Cascadia. See MenWomen models.

Speakers

Among others, hear life-changing insights from Team Sanlam Painted Wolf captain Mark Collins, George-based coach Mauritz Jansen van Rensburg, personal trainer Rob Hill (strength session), and TRAIL founder Deon Braun (nutrition tweaks).
Learn from the experts during a 60-90 minute long run (split into groups to cater for all abilities).
Your day of fun and learning will end at 5pm, when a pair of Brooks Cascadia 12 shoes worth R2,399 (or your choice of Brooks shoes to the same value*) will be won by one lucky attendee. A light lunch and refreshments during the day are included in the price.
For those keen to do a night run, we’ll do an optional 40-minute session in the plantations around Simola, starting at 5:30pm.

*Balance between this value and a lower value shoe is not redeemable in cash.

FAQ

Q: How much practical running we will be doing and how technical will it be? Will it be OK if we use our road running shoes?

A: You won’t run too far. Count on 7km max – at a pace that you can manage, with regular stop-starts to stretch, discuss the training being done, and to regroup. Road shoes will be adequate in most sections, even if it rains.
