Applewood Harvest Festival and the Tru Cape Trail Run
May 6, 2017 @ 8:30 am — May 6, 2017 @ 3:00pm
We had too much fun with so many wonderful new (and old) friends at last year’s first Applewood Harvest Festival and Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing Trail Running Challenge, that we can’t wait to make it a yearly event! We invite all fresh air fitness enthusiasts, outdoor lovers, adventurers, foodies, grannies, grandpas, aunties, uncles and lots of children for eating, drinking, playing, running and generally spending precious family time together at our celebration of the end of a busy Harvest Season.
The Applewood Harvest Festival is filled with apple-themed activities and the best of Elgin’s gourmet artisanal and farm-grown produce. Expect fine fare from local restaurants The Poolroom, Hickory Shack and Peregrine (to name a few) and the best of craft cider and Elgin wines. Master an apple tasting, buy apple pies and apples by the bag and let the children run free. There will be lots of entertainment for both young and old from live music to hay-diving, zip-lining and apple bobbing as well as loads of beautiful crafts and goodies from local artisans.
The Tru-Cape Trail Run offers both an 11km trail through the beauty of the surrounding farmlands, or a more gentle 5km Fun Run. The scenic courses will take you though the apple and pear orchards that surround this beautiful country based school.
The 11km Trail Run starts at 08h30 and
The 5km Family Fun Run starts at 09h00.
Hosted by Applewood Preparatory School – visit www.applewood.co.za for more information.
