DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE:
The SkyMarathon is a challenging mix of forest single track, climbing mountain paths, dirt jeep track and cut grass paths. The route is designed to pass through the most scenic parts of the area including waterfalls, streams and amazing views! Runners are taken to one of the highest parts of the Ingeli Mountain so make sure you have your "climbing legs"on (Approximate of 2000m ascent for Sky Marathon Runners).
The 21km Mountain Challenge follows the same route as the main event for 12kms before splitting off and returning to the finish at the lodge. The 21km is the mini version of the full challenge, but should not be underestimated. It is still a tough, challenging and scenic route itself!
The 10km and 5km forest trail events do not venture onto Ingeli Mountain, but still involve a few steep climbs and descents through the forested area. They have been designed for those looking for something shorter with the 5km well suited to beginner trail runners and children. Walkers are welcome for both of the Forest Trail routes.
