Harrismith Mountain Race

Harrismith Mountain Race

 

Harrismith Mountain Race

Every October, a very challenging 15 km running race takes place up the Platberg ('flat mountain') in Harrismith (Free State, South Africa). The arguably 'toughest in the world' route climbs approximately 600 metres in five kilometres to the summit of Platberg (2377m / 7799ft). This race is the oldest in South Africa, older even than the Comrades Marathon.

The race begins at 11h00 at Platberg Stadium, Harrismith. You can pre-enter up to about two weeks before the race. You can also enter at the start, at a premium. The first 500 entrants get T-shirts. Walkers are welcome. The first three men and women win gold medals, those who complete the course in less than 1h30 win silver and all who finish within the cut-off of 2h45 get bronze medals. The first 500 entrants get T-shirts.
