Event Description

Now in it's third year, the JanBraai Marathon is the premium wine-drinking, braaing, trail running, partying event in the world!

The JanBraai Marathon is a three-day trail and vineyard run totalling 42km that takes place in the Slanghoek and Breedekloof Wine Valleys which sit close to Rawsonville, 80 minutes from the Cape Town CBD, an hour from both Stellenbosch and Durbanville, and just 40 minutes from Paarl.

Each day starts and finishes at Goudini Spa, with the daily routes taking runners through as many vineyards as possible, over incredible single track and across scenic fynbos trails. Runners will pass through the local wine cellars, while water points will feature braais and wine pairings.

Expect live music each night, stunning trails, scenic routes, the legendary Braai Team hospitality, and an incredible race village atmosphere.


  • This is an off-road run - trail shoes are advisable.
  • Hydration packs or water bottles are encouraged from 2021 onwards. Water is provided at the wine stations, approximately 5-7km apart each day. If you feel you can run between stations without water, that is also fine. We however recommend carrying your own water.


Your friends, family and partners are all welcome to join you at the JanBraai Marathon for a R2750 supporters fee (this excludes accommodation).

Official supporter non-running partners (those that have paid the supporter fee) or family will have access to the JanBraai Marathon race village area and be able to enjoy the live music at the event.

Official supporter non-runners will have access to race village, the event food, the supporter points on route and everything the runner is entitled too, minus the event goodie bag.
