For the first time in the history of the Otter Trail Run, race organisers Magnetic South will introduce a shorter race, 10 km in distance, which is aimed at all those athletes who:

  • want to be part of South Africa’s most competitive Trail Run 
  • want to be there when worldclass athletes cross the finish line of the Otter 
  • are friends or family of an Otter athlete and are keen to be active without missing the finish of the  Otter heroes. 
  • want to run, but are not ready for the  Otter  
  • wanted to run, but didn’t manage to get an entry to the Otter
  • just love the Trail 

If  one of above criteria fits you, then the Dassie Trail Run is the right race for you!

A beautiful trail starting and finishing at Stormsriver Mouth joining the last kilometers of the Otter Run. The race starts at 07:30 am in the morning; 1.5 hours after the start of the Otter. Dassie athletes will finish through the same finish shoot as the  Otter athletes will a little bit later.

Achievable for the novice trailrunner but will give a good taste of the splendour and technical challenges faced by participants doing The Retto Run - The Grail of Trail!
