TRAVEL PROGRAMME - ultra trail cape town 2018


Runcation SA is partnering with UTCT to offer their Official Travel Programme in  2018.

We offer you, the UTCT runner:
1) A seamless, stress-free experience during your time in Cape Town, from the minute you arrive,  in the lead-up to the race, the event itself, until you head home.  Getting to the beaches to chill or to the shops to buy plasters and anti-nausea pills, we’ll make it easy for you.

2) You will get to be part of the UTCT vibe during the race build up.  You’ll be introduced to the Cape Town trail running scene, be shown the route by experienced local runners, and go on sightseeing tour of the Cape Peninsula with UTCT route recce touches.  Back at the hotel we have a range of South African experiences, from a traditional braai to wine tastings put on by local wine farms.  You’ll get to meet and mingle with fellow runners, and grab an instagram selfie or two with a few of the elites out to contest for the UTCT podium.  Flexibility is key – you let us know when you want to be part of the activities and when you want a little quiet time to prepare for the challenge that lies ahead.

3)  Visiting Cape Town and going on a South African Safari are bucket list experiences, we’ll build a vacation for you to take advantage of your visit to the country and your post UTCT bliss.  From golden beaches to roaring lions, we've got you covered.
