South Africa’s iconic five day Whale Trail hiking route is offered as a challenge to runners capable of embracing all 53km and 1900m elevation as a trail running ultra, packed with spectacular mountain fynbos, technical rocky ridgelines, sandy beach stretches and endless, mind blowing, beautiful vistas all in one day. It has become a must-do for those who have already tackled the more conventional runs out there and bragging rights on this one are substantial!
