Up/Downgrades, substitutes & refunds

UP/DOWNGRADES

  • Upgrades and downgrades will be allowed on the day only at registration as long as the individual race to which you want to move has not sold out yet. For example: if you entered the 38km JMC and want to downgrade to the 24km JMC it will depend on the availability.  

SUBSTITUTES:

  • In the event a confirmed entrant is not able to make the race and they have their own substitute and wish to transfer their entry, they will need to give their race number to the new entrant to enter with on the day at registration. 
  • The substitute will need to pay a R50 substitution fee at registration. 

WAITING LIST:

  • A waiting list will come into effect once all entries have sold out. If we have not received proof of payment for your entry within the time frame specified your entry will be cancelled and transferred to the next person in line on the waiting list.

REFUNDS:

  • Due to the nature of the industry we are not required to refund entries other than for hospitalisation or death. However, refund requests will be dealt with on their own merits depending on length of notice of written cancellation received before the event and our ability to secure payment from another participant from the waiting list. Please note that we may charge a reasonable cancellation fee if the refund request is approved. 
  • No refunds will be given to runners who do not make cut-off. Cut-off info.
  • Any refunds made will be paid within 30 calendar days.

Race Info

Race Info

The Jonkershoek Valley is without a doubt one of the most beautiful mountain scenes in the Western Cape. Massive turrets and cliffs of orange-faced quartzite hold fortress over a collection of rambling mountain streams and waterfalls. It's so magnificent that it's impossible to ignore, the essence of the place seeping under your skin into the fabric of your senses.  

With the kind permission of Cape Nature, we have been given access to the wilderness area hiking trails, and together with the MTO tracks and mountain bike trails, the Wildrunner team have strung together what is arguably one of the most incredible mountain trail running challenges on the calendar.

Have a look at this short epic promo video to give you a mouth watering taste:
