Nissan Trailseeker MTB Series #4 Wellington

Sunday, 19 August 2018

When describing the term runderful, it roughly translates to how someone feels after a great race. Today in Wellington, the word meant: running in a wonderful area filled with adventurous trails, panoramic views, interesting sightings and loads of wine.

 

2018 marks the first year for the Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series and the Bosman Family Vineyards was the perfect host for round four of this conspicuous occasion.

 

The picture-perfect day ensured runners were spoiled from start to finish. These trails were especially created to challenge their inner mountaineer and experience the beauty of the Cape Winelands.

 

“It was great to see so many smiling faces cross the finish line from both avid trail runners to beginners. This Series will continue to grow and will be a frontrunner in the trail running community in the future.” Francois Theron – Race Director
