Posted on 11 May 2023 By Tsoku Maela

The VWS Trail Challenge is an annual fundraiser for the VWS, a non-profit organisation that relies on the generosity of the public to support its mission. This is the 17th edition of the VWS Trail Challenge and it’s once again designed as a trail run with stunning views over the city of Cape Town while enjoying the invigorating trails on one of the 7 Wonders of Nature, Table Mountain. Starting from Gardens RFC, the 10 km or 20 km route will take you on an epic tour of the beautiful lower slopes of Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak, the rambling tracks of Deer Park, the glorious single-track contour above Tafelberg Road – all in all a majestic day out in glorious Cape Town.

Organised and run entirely by the VWS volunteers, all proceeds go towards the organisation, an entirely volunteer-run, non-profit entity dedicated to the protection of biodiversity and the preservation of our natural heritage. The VWS receive no official or municipal funding and all funds (raised by our volunteers, via donations or events like this) are used for operational and logistical costs when fighting devastating wildfires in the Western Cape.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this epic adventure on Table Mountain while making a meaningful difference in your community. Plus, Jack Black will be selling cold beers after the race and R5 from each beer sold will go towards the Volunteer Wildfire Services fundraising initiative.

It is not too late to sign up for this Sunday’s race — register today and join the VWS Trail Challenge 2023. Tickets are available on Quicket.
