For those who don’t know, the picturesque and historic towns of Greyton and Genadendal is less than 2 hours’ drive from Cape Town, and are situated against the foot of the majestic Riviersonderend Mountains. The event has proved to be a strong drawcard for people wanting to take part in outdoor fun and fitness activities, in a pristine country environment that’s friendly, hospitable and warm, as well as being strong on recreation, relaxation and re-charging the batteries. The tranquil village provides lots of after-event fun and entertainment in a warm, country atmosphere.
