The race village with the start and finish to the race is located on Beskuitfontein farm, just 4km down the road from Carlton Heights Guesthouse. We provide accommodation to runners who prefer not to camp at the village and prepare the meals for the event. Campers and runners enjoy true Karoo cuisine with delicious lamb chops, “skilpaadjies”, roosterkoeke and more – all going down with ice cold Steller Brewery (https://www.facebook.com/stellarbrewery/) craft beer and gin on tap. The village even offers open air showers under the stars and cooling down in an old school farm dam next to a windpomp.
The 60km route added in 2020 includes a run through the heart of the farming operation as well as an added mountain pass and watershed plateau featuring stunning panoramic views. Together with the Fresh Trails team, we strive to make the Fresh@Beskuitfontein Trail Run a quality outdoor experience with a refreshing family-friendly farm feel!

Remember the convenience of Carlton Heights Guesthouse and Beskuitfontein being located literally on the N9-national route towards the coast – this is exactly why this race is the perfect stop-over for trail-lovers kicking off their December holiday. Take note that it is only a 70km detour to reach us when travelling along the N1 to the Western Cape by turning off on the N10 at Hanover.
