Most athletes make use of the camping facilities at the Langesnek Leadership Development Centre that is part of Moolmanshoek Private game reserve. The Lodge has 12 rooms that are superbly fitted out and ideal for those who are not into camping but still want to be part of the event.
The 2 Peaks race is a thrilling and scenic adventure that takes you through some of the most stunning mountain landscapes in South Africa, and is the perfect introduction to the 4 Peaks Mountain Challenge. Starting at the Moolmanshoek Private Game Reserve, runners will tackle the first half of the 4 Peaks Mountain Challenge route, ascending two of the four distinct peaks that make up the race. Once they reach the spectator point, runners will begin the descent down the mountain, navigating some challenging terrain as they make their way towards the junction with the panoramic route. From there, they’ll join the panoramic route and enjoy some breathtaking views as they make their way back to the finish line at Moolmanshoek. With a vertical accent of over 900m, this is a true test of strength, endurance, and mountain running skills, but with a slightly easier route designed for those new to mountain running.
This race exists to enlighten all those who think the Free State is that flat part on the N1 on your way to Cape Town. Come and challenge yourself with the unique and extreme 4Peaks mountain race. The race’s home is in the picturesque Moolmanshoek Private Game Reserve. This unique circular race runs along the tops of the Witteberg Mountain range forming an unforgettable horse shoe which encloses the Moolmanshoek valley.
The race is hosted by the families at Moolmanshoek. Most athletes make a weekend out of this event with friends & family adding their own value with activities like the 10KM Panoramic Run, a kiddies dash and a kiddies fun zone
Apart from our main event & the 10km there are several activities the Reserve offer such as: hikes, bird watching & game viewing from horseback; a horse cart or a 4×4 game viewing vehicle.
