Transportation From Wartrail CC To Lady Grey

As the race is from point to point and some choose to race without a support team, we offer a service to take you back to LG after the race. We normally do 4 timeslots - Saturday 8 pm, Sunday 6 am, Sunday 9 am & Sunday 11 am. Please ensure that the time you select is after your expected time to finish the race. If you miss a taxi, for this reason, we will find you the next available seat back to Lady Grey. 

This will only be for the 100km & 65km unsupported athletes. You can book and pay for the Taxi service on the day of registration, at the “info, taxi’s & tents” desk.

Balloch

Due to Covid Balloch will only be open for 100KM supporters/seconds.
Balloch is the only seconding station on the route. This will be a park and ride system from the farm gate to the cave for all seconds. It is a 5km trip to the cave from the parking area.

Balloch has no cell phone signal at all, please advise your supporters accordingly. The team at Balloch will be selling food and beverages all day, this includes fantastic pizzas, sweet treats like cakes and cookies, cool drinks, Beers, Tea, and Coffee.

Please note that supporters in the 100km race need to let their runners complete the medical check before they will have access to that runner!

Wartrail Country Club

The finish will be a hive of activity, if you have booked a tent please see the tent team at registration to get your tent number and position. If you have your own tent, your team will be shown the camping sites that they can pitch the tent. We have upgraded the facilities in and around the club. The showers inside are only for women and the outside facilities for the men.

Please note that your second need to pay for your camping directly as you enter the gate to the country club it's R80 per person, the athlete's camping is included in the entry. The community relies on your honesty and support to make improvements to the facilities each year and this is done with this revenue.

There is no cell phone reception at the club, however, we have managed to put a wifi hotspot in for essentials like WhatsApp and Facebook. This is sponsored by Snow Valley Communications, so a big thanks to Chris and his team. Food and beverages will also be sold at the country club so please support the local community who go to a lot of effort in supporting this event annually.
