Greyton Brew Run

6km | 13km | 21km

Run the sublime Greyton Nature Reserve trails with 100% of proceeds going to Greyton House Bursary Fund.

The Routes:

21km with 900m climbing
This year we are sticking to a clockwise direction, with a taste of Greyton Mountain Marathon route thrown in.

The first 7kms is an easy-going fast warm-up mix of trail and jeep track, and then the fun starts.  Two proper climbs each followed by a fast runnable downhill trail to the water points (11km & 16km). The first climb is more of a scramble and although they reach the same height the serious climbing for the first one starts higher up.

Between the climbs is a great section of fast trail, keep your wits about you with some boulder hopping river crossings. And then you climb Maermans in one straight ascent out of the river bed to the top – 300m in 2 kms.

A finish down Zigzag and a shortcut through the village brings into the town square and over the finish line!

13km with 450m climbing
A classic combo of gritty nature reserve trails and smooth mountain bike trails gives a great balance of variety. A fast flat 2km start to the Nature Reserve and then a pure undulating trail that leads into your climb of the day to the water point at 7kms. After that it’s sweeping downhills with a last climb through the village and over the finish line at the town square!

6km with 100m climbing
Keeping the route similar to last year, we take you on a quick circuit around the village with a good mix of open road, jeep track and fun single track.

Included in your entry:

Jump start your race with a complimentary coffee. Along the routes you’ll find three water points, stocked with ice tea, energy drinks, cokes, water, treats and banana bread galore!  If you make it to the finish, and trust me you’ll want to… a free pint of Greyton’s very own Old Potter’s Inn brew.  Nothing could be better!


Pass Greyton House Village School (on your left) as you enter Greyton and park at the Old Moravian Hall next door to the yellow library. Parking attendants will keep an eye on your car for the day.


This can be done on the Friday evening before the race from 16h00 – 20h00, as well as from 07H15 on Saturday morning.

Finding Greyton:

You’ll find this charming dorpie 140 km from CT along the N2 and then 32km from the turn off just before Caledon. Watch out for the donkeys between Genadendal and Greyton – the speed limit is 80 km/h for a good reason!  Allow 2 hours travel time from Cape Town in usual traffic conditions.
