Jack Black x Ultra Trail Cape Town

November 26, 2018 IN Events

The Ultra Trail Cape Town is more than a race. It’s a cinematic experience. It’s a triumph. The culmination of countless hours of preparation and early morning wake ups. It’s companionship. It’s a celebration. The thought that, somehow, I finished this thing.

The route essentially circumnavigates the Table Mountain range – from Peak to Beach to Vineyard – and it’s hard as hell. Some say getting through it is all about mind over matter. Others say it’s about the ice cold Jack Black beer waiting at the finish line.

Last year we had the privilege of handing out the ultimate reward to the legends crossing the finish. The atmosphere and the gees was indescribable. There were tears – some of joy – palpable relief, and the sense of utter accomplishment.

We can’t wait to do it all over again.

Runners – we’ll see you at the finish. The rest of you – pull in for a beer and a bite and help us cheer these machines across the line.

Check out the race schedule for info on expected first finish times, and the UTCT Facebook page for more info. Bar opens at 10.00!
