Goudveld the new home of the Houtkapper Trail Run is an old mining town in the lush afromontane forests of the Garden Route National Park. 
This trail run offers 3 routes of varying lengths and difficulty. Taking runners through the forests made famous by Daleen Mathee (the late authoress of Circles in the forest, Fiela’s child, Moerbeibos and others), runners will pass through Krisjan-se-nek (where Daleen Mathee’s ashes were scattered), the Daleen Mathee memorial and the site of the 880 year old Yellowwood tree known as the Daleen Mathee Big Tree.
The 15km and 27km routes have been chosen not only to challenge the intermediate to experienced trail runners but to provide them with an opportunity to experience the deepest secrets at the heart of the Garden Route National park. Single track and terrain to excite trail runners of all ability including an easier route for the beginner trail runner of 9km.
Water can be drunk and bottles/hydration packs filled at the various watercrossings – don’t be put off by the colour (tannin).

Knysna Cycle Tour – Virtual on Rouvy or StravaVirtual times- All day - Anytime - At your own pace
The 2021 Rotary Knysna Cycle Tour will offer cyclists both a real and virtual experience of its iconic routes traversing the beautiful surrounds of the area.
For cyclists who cannot make it to Knysna for the real event, and for those competing in the real event but wanting an extra challenge, event organizer Knysna Speed Festival, together with partners Wesgro, Visit Knysna and PSG Wealth Insure, has taken the event into the virtual mainstream with the launch of the Virtual Rotary Knysna Cycle Tour.
The virtual tour will feature three stages using a selection of actual routes from the Knysna Cycle tour for riders to experience the beauty of Knysna’s surrounds, while also engaging in some fierce competitive riding! Virtual Insanity, the South African agents for Rouvy, visited Knysna to film three segments of the route before digitising them into the virtual race.
