“We have another great offer to share,” continues Meyer.  “The Houw Hoek Hotel has made their Comfort and Luxury Rooms available for the weekend at an impressive rate.  This is, however, only for runners that have entered and paid for the 2021 AfricanX Trailrun.  You will need to present your proof of payment before being able to book a room.  That is if you choose not to stay in the tented village.  We are extremely excited to bring back South Africa’s premier three-day stage trail run and can’t wait to ‘Let Nature Give You A Run For Your Money’ in 2021.”
