Wednesday Farm Runs
The Wednesday farm runs are held every Wednesday on alternating farms. The venues are published in the trail year program as well as on the Durbanville AC Trail and Durbac Members Facebook pages. All runners, from beginners to trail goats and weird people are welcome to join us on the trails.
Weekend Pack Runs
Typically held on a Sunday, these runs explore the mountains of the Western Cape (Tafelberg, Jonkershoek, Paarl Rock, Helderberg, Tygerberg and more). We try to arrange at least 2 of these per month and the details will also be shared on the Durbanville AC Trail Facebook page. All runners are welcome – friends, family, road-runners and trail goats.
The runs normally last 3-4 hours (distance varies). It is important to be self-sufficient on these runs as far as water, food, weather-appropriate clothing and kit are concerned.
Durbac Trail supports multi-day trail events in 2018, and we encourage members to enter with other Durbies for a trail running experience:
