The third Greyton Mountain Marathon kicked off on a cold Saturday on 17 June 2023 at the Greyton House Village School.
Competitors were undeterred by the weather while tightening their laces and adjusting their gear (some taking a deep breath to mentally prepare for the challenging yet rewarding experience which lay ahead).
This year’s route once again included the rugged and scenic terrain of the mountains, but besides the uneven surfaces, recent excessive rainfall and the resulting effect on the roads and route made it a demanding and physically intense two days.
The runners set off at a brisk pace and gave it everything they had. Next year, we hope to have snowcapped mountains to add to the adventure.
Congratulations to Nelius Swart and Catherine Flanagan for winning their respective categories.
