Speed, Talent and Technique; The favourites for the Cainbrogie Race

With the Garden Routes top trail runners entered the racing up front will be fast and furious. Robberg Run record holder Victor Gugushe will be coming up against the Collins brothers from Knysna both great runners . Mark has more technical skill and John more pace . This run will suit them both but Victor is the complete package. Junior Nick Cuthbert has shown that he is a rising star and would be worth watching as well.There may also be some surprise packagers from out of town with a large number of entries coming from Cape Town. For the average runner the route will be challenging but do able and with the shorter run offering a great trail run introduction and then of course an Easter Egg hunt to keep the little ones involved.

Cairnbrogie Farm owner Andrew Hill walked a short section of the single track and described it as "awesome". Jeannette Walder from the Pennypinchers Adventure Racing Team ran the full 10km route yesterday and said " the route has got it all from technical single track,unbelievable views and some fast jeep track sections to make up time lost thru enjoying the view."

The route is very dry so all runners are asked to carry some hydration for the 10km race and a bottle of water would not go amiss on the short run either.

Cairnbrogie farm is situated Just outside of Plettenberg Bay. Follow the signs to the Airport and then by pass the airport and hit a dirt road . About three km after the start of the dirt look for the Pennypinchers banners and turn left.
