AfricanX routes set to shine for 10th anniversary

Celebrating its 10th anniversary at the picturesque Boschendal Wine Estate (Stellenbosch/Franschhoek) the weekend of 27 – 29 April 2018, the AfricanX Trailrun presented by ASICS will treat trail runners to an exhilarating trail running experience.

With awesome sponsor prizes up for grabs, “Dress Up Day” is sure to be the source of much excitement.
