Hot event: the Cliff Path Night Run

October 5, 2015

In addition to the annual conglomeration of whales along the coast of Hermanus this time of year, 250 runners from all over will participate in the annual Cliff Path Night Run on 7 October 2015. As official sponsor, the team will be there, yet again, to cheer on all our participants and catch some “gees”.

Participants can run (or walk) the 6 km or 10 km trails along the cliff paths and over the Mussel River. Of course, though Hermanus can be seen in all its splendour during the day, the night run requires the use of a headlamp or torch, so be sure to wear yours!
