“Let Nature Give You A Run For Your Money”

The organises of South Africa’s premier three day stage trail run, the ProNutro AfricanX Trailrun presented by New Balance are celebrating the 7th running of this much anticipated event by announcing a substantial prize purse increase of R77 000, taking the overall total to an impressive sum of R161 100.

“As the event organisers the ProNutro AfricanX Trailrun lies very close to our hearts,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “A great deal of effort has gone into designing the routes, while the Festival Village on the grounds of the Houw Hoek Inn provides the perfect setting to welcome home tired runners.  Thanks to the tremendous support received from our sponsors and the trail running community, we are proud to be able to go one step further by implementing a considerable prize purse increase for the 2015 race.  We’re looking forward to an action packed event and can’t wait to welcome all runners to the start line on the Friday”.
