The White Clay Trail Run is the longest running trail run on the Wild Coast. The route, starting at Ocean View Hotel in Coffee Bay & finishing at White Clay Resort, is undulating with 180 degree uninterrupted Sea Views, single track, river crossings, land mark views and more!

New Twists and Turns
We’ve updated the course for better views and less gravel road! There will be 2 Water Points along the route

What to Expect

Starting on the beach, in front of the Ocean View Hotel, the runners and walkers will head up and over the Bomvu Sugarloaf before entering White Clay Resort and contour the steep cliffs that link to Hole in the Wall. Refuel with fresh water at the Iconic Hole in The Wall and head and make your way along a gravel road to the finish line at White Clay Resort!

Bring the family or get the running group together for another awesome Wild Coast adventure!
