Greyton Mountain Marathon 2024

We have 50 Early Bird tickets available until 15 December

2 days | 42kms | 1500m+ Elevation Gain

Greyton Mountain Marathon, now in its fourth year, is a two-day stage race that winds along the upper contour of the Sonderend Mountains and the folds that encircle the towns of Greyton and Genadendal. The entire route is 42 kms spread over two days – 21 kms on the Saturday and 21 on the Sunday.

We’ve veered off the known routes for this one and included a big chunk of unmarked mountainside frequented only by local hikers and those who know their way around obscure hiking websites. It’s pure mountain running. 

All proceeds from Greyton Mountain Marathon go towards Greyton House Bursary Fund, providing financial aid to children from disadvantaged communities attending Greyton House Village School. Each step you take supports this worthy cause!


Day 1: 21 km | 1032 m elevation gain (green route, anti-clockwise)
Day 2: 21 km | 520 m elevation  gain  (blue route, anti-clockwise)

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.
