Karoo Winter WOOL Festival
Celebrating Wool and all things authentically Karoo this winter.
Karoo Winter Wool Run & Mountain Bike
Beskuitfontein Trails proudly presents the first Karoo Winter Wool Run & MTB on Saturday, the 25th of June 2022. This is a family-friendly trail run/hike and mountain bike event taking place on a working sheep farm! Race entries and their supporters will be welcomed by freshly ground coffee/hot chocolate and beskuit, as well as bonfires burning at the race village from early morning to warm them up before they start. Race entries can choose between a 5km and 10km trail running/hiking route, or a 27km mountain biking route. All the routes are well-marked and feature beautiful scenic landscapes of the mountainous eastern Karoo. The terrain varies between Jeep-track, riverine rocky trails and easy walking/running/cycling veld paths. Race entries will also have chance to listen and learn from Karoo bossie expert, Dr Loraine van den Berg from the Grootfontein Agricultural Development Institute, who they will encounter on route ready to show and tell about the unique ecology of this part of the Karoo - and why it is ideal for wool production. Each race entry receives a goodie bag filled with goodies, including vouchers which can be used to buy woolen products at the Karoo Winter Wool Market starting at Dwarsvlei farm after the race. Each finisher will also receive a special Winter Wool Run & MTB medal. Core Merino is proudly sponsoring beautiful Merino wool shirts to the male and female winners of each distance. The prize-giving ceremony will be taking place during the Karoo Winter Wool Speaker Programme at Dwarsvlei farm. Sport Teams can also enter at a 20% discount and stand a chance to win a special prize!
The Beskuitfontein Race village is located on the N9/N10 highway 25km north of Middelburg in the direction of Hanover.
