The legendary Braamfontein Spruit! The City of Gold’s longest river cuts a spectacular green path through the heart of Jozi. Flowing from its protected underground source in the Hillbrow highlands, meeting up with the Jukskei River at the City Limits, reaching its ultimate destination where the mighty Limpopo River flows into the Indian Ocean in Mocambique, this waterway is one of Joburg’s greatest features. Along its journey through Africa’s ultimate urban metropolis, gathering friends like the Montgomery and Westdene Spruits and incorporating such natural gems as the Emmarentia Dam & Botanical Gardens, Alberts Farm and Delta Park, trailrunners are presented with uninterrupted Trail Marathon.
Four segments! 3 loops and a point-to-point. In your own time, at your own pace, in any order. Each loop gives between 8-12km of genuine fun trailrunning, with hills, streams, dams and magnificent indigenous flora, while the point-to-point follows the spruit downstream (or upstream – your choice!) towards the ocean for 15-20km! Run Joburg from a completely different perspective! Each segment is extremely dog friendly for those with awesome 4-legged running partners.
