Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience transforms into a spectacular Two-Day Stage Race

Trail running enthusiasts will be treated to double the action at the Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience with event organisers, Stillwater Sports’ announcement that this much loved Stellenbosch based event will now take the form of an exhilarating Two-Day Stage Race.

In response to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa, Stillwater Sports has also confirmed that the 2020 event has moved to Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 April 2021!

“We’re excited to host the Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience in the form of a Two-Day Stage Race in 2021,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “Our Route Designers have been spoilt for choice while selecting each stage’s route.  On Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 April 2021 trail runners will get to experience the best and most exclusive trails on offer in Stellenbosch.  We look forward to welcoming adventure seekers to the Festival Village at the Stellenbosch High School in April.”

“We love that the Savanna Origin of Trails Trail Run Experience will give trail runners the opportunity to enjoy two days of exceptional trail running in the beautiful town of Stellenbosch,” says Kavir Gangiah, Media, Sponsorship and Events Manager Distell Southern Africa.  “The event is unapologetically bold, just like Savanna.  As with the mountain bike race, trail runners will be treated to a fantastic on route experience from start to finish and we cannot wait to be part of the action.  We look forward to bringing the ‘gees’ and refreshing trail runners with ice cold Savannas on and off the trails.”
