Jonkershoek Valley is without a doubt one of the most beautiful mountain scenes
in the Western Cape. Massive turrets and cliffs of orange-faced quartzite hold
fortress over a collection of rambling mountain streams and waterfalls. The
Wildrunner team have strung together one of the most incredible mountain trail
running challenges on the calendar. Three distances make up the Jonkershoek
Mountain Challenge; 38km, 24km and 11km. This year the event falls on 19 May.
Participants are able to select the distance relevant to their level of
mountain running experience, with the 38km positioned as the ultimate distance.
With an ascent of 1 850m across the 38km, and terrain made up of single
track, mountain climbs and relentlessly technical terrain, this is the belly of
the JMC beast.
