Devil’s Lair Fifth Leg Trail Run

This section of the Cape to Cape – the northern third, is the most spectacular and the best for running with only short beach sections, no large hills and ever-changing scenery. It contains short technical sections – mostly on the 2nd leg and 4th leg, though inexperienced runners can easily walk those sections.

There are creek crossings on 2nd, 3rd and 4th legs so everyone can expect to get their feet wet.

The event distances have been chosen to challenge all grades of runners. Occasional fun runners will find the 13.5km run a thrill and challenge – this section has the best the cape has to offer, while the more experienced runner can choose from the rest. The marathon should not be attempted by inexperienced trail runners – if you are going to try that then train on trails! Please note the event (any distance) is not suitable for walkers. While most competitors will walk parts, we do insist all competitors be able to run, at least on road, the distance they have entered for.
