HESSEQUA HERITAGE TRAIL RUN (16KM)

The Hessequa area and Stilbaai specifically has many interesting heritage and historical sites and there is no better way than to celebrate Heritage Day than to participate in the Hessequa Heritage Trail Run where you will pass a few very interesting places.
This 16km Trail Run starts in Jongensfontein – there are (one-way) shuttles from Stilbaai to Jongensfontein – and takes runners along the beautiful coast line and past various historical places – like ancient fish traps at Skulpiesbaai; the shell middens (close by); the ‘Wafra’ tok (the fishing boat with a sad story – look out for it at the NSRI building at the harbour); various monuments as well as some of the oldest beach houses – to Stilbaai where it finishes at the Stilbaai Tourism Bureau situated in the Palinggat Homestead that is also part of Stilbaai’s history.
