RUNNING DOWN THE FENCES WITH RUNCATION SOUTH AFRICA

Runners and the great outdoors are deeply connected. Runcation ensures this connection is symbiotic – by offering runners the chance to run in protected conservation areas from wildlife reserves to mountain parks, and in return ensuring these runs have a positive impact on these beautiful landscapes.

Runcation is a member of The Be Moved Collective, aligning the running focussed tours they host with conservation by:

  • Offering immersive conservation safaris at the end of running tours
  • Developing specific running events and experiences to promote awareness of conservation, raise funds for reserves and their people, support future oriented sustainable future with our planet
  • Committing 2% of revenue from these tours to conservation and community initiatives at the reserve visited
  • Committing a further 1% to securing development athletes entries to Runcation partner events
  • Aligning with Be Moved’s FIRE programmes – Fundraising for Impact Reward Experiences.

 

A passion for the great outdoors is a beautiful thing. Nature connects us to our souls, and connects us to each other. This is a powerful phenomenon.

Do you have a FIRE in your soul that connects you to the natural world around you?

Be Moved’s FIRE programme has a channel for your passion.

HOW YOU CAN RUN DOWN THE FENCES?

We know travel is still quite difficult now, but we can still dream, we can still plan.  And so can you. You can make a difference till you travel and when you travel.  It’s about running and it is about so much more.  

Have a look at the options below to see which events and tours you want to run.

Bring your fire to light the dream to create a mega reserve in the Eastern Cape.

THE ADDO2FISH MARATHON

A run among the Big 5 for the Big 5 and all their friends.

Distances of approximately 8km, 21km and 40km.

ULTRA TRAIL CAPE TOWN

Runcation is the offical travel partner to UTCT. An incredible week in Cape Town is on offer helping runners prepare for their race. Then the big weekend on Table Mountain. And to relax and celebrate afterwards runners go on a conservation and running safari, becoming part of the Addo2Fish mega reserve and conservation economy initiative.

COMRADES MARATHON

Runcation is a Comrades Official Travel Partner – the grandest ultra of them all. Possibly the ultimate bucket list race to run. Runcation guests are able to turn their dream trip to South Africa into soul inspiring experience with a dream fulfilling safari.

ULTRA TRAIL DRAKENSBERG

Runcation is the official UTD travel partner, a race that spans two countries and shows off the majesty of Southern Africa’s major mountain range. The week before is spent preparing runners for the race, the week after connecting them with their planet.

SANI STAGGER

A marathon up and down the iconic Sani Pass to Lesotho – not to be taken lightly. Runcation is the official travel partner to the race, where again all runners on Runcation support conservation work in the sensitive mountain reserve, and then connect in person with nature on a conservation impact safari.
