Stilbaai’s first Hessequa Heritage Festival will take place on Saturday, 23 September 2017, and will consist of a 5km and 16km trail run ending at the Stilbaai Tourism Bureau where everyone can enjoy the festivities of the ‘Brood- en Beskuitfees’.
The day will kick off with the Hessequa Heritage Trail Run. Runners – and walkers – can choose between the 16km coastal route between Jongensfontein and Stilbaai or the shorter 5km route that will also finish at Stilbaai Tourism.
The entry fee for the 16km Trail Run is R120 and R50 for the 5km event. Entries can be done at the Stilbaai Tourism Bureau on Friday (22 Sept) from 15:00 and on Saturday morning between 7:00 and 8:00 and on www.stilbaai.me. Entry forms are also available at the Tourism Bureau, Harcourts Stilbaai, Stilbaai Kelders and Crystal Stream.
Experience the most scenic coastal trail run!
On race day, shuttles for the 5km and 16km participants will depart from the registration point at the Stilbaai Tourism Bureau to the starting points.
The 5km trail will start at the parking area at Skulpiesbaai beach (at the fish traps) while the 16km will start at the tidal pool in Jongensfontein. Both races will start at 9:00.
There will be one water point on the 16km trail and all participants are requested to take their own water and supplements along.
The ‘Brood- en Beskuitfees’ takes place on the same day and fits in perfectly with Heritage Day – or National Braai Day – and promises to have something for everyone. There will be stalls with a variety of bread and rusks with the ‘local’ flour producer from Swellendam, Eureka Mills, also attending the festivities. Food, drinks and music as well as the smell of ‘braaivleis’ on the green lawns under the huge milkwood trees will be the perfect setting for a a relaxing day.
Limited space for stalls is available. Contact Johannie Vermeulen at Tel: 083 333 1810 to book your space.
