Jonkershoek Mountain Challenge - 2018

180416_JMC_Poster.jpgThe 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.
