Caltex Sole Destroyer 21.1Km & Sole Teaser 9km


General Description:

The Sole Destroyer was named after Chris Sole a well know Border Athlete, who used the Horseshoe Valley as his training ground.

The first half of the 21.1km route is run on dirt roads through scenic farming areas and includes several challenging hill climbs and the subsequent descents with the  aptly named Heart Break Hill coming at 7.5km into the race.  At 12.5km athletes are confronted with a leg jarring descent followed by a relatively flat and fast section through East London's suburbs until at 18.5km they reach the final sting in the tail, the climb up Willasdale Drive. The amazing scenery, the camaraderie and the fantastic T-shirts  keep many runners coming back to take on the Challenge  "Don't let it break you."

The 9km Sole Teaser follows a challenging route through East London's suburbs which includes the hill climb up Batting Road as well as the climb up Willasdale Drive.
