Southern Striders hosts the annual Tokai Manor House 16 km Run on the 26th of December. This race is popular with both locals and visitors looking for a race in the holiday season.
From its start in 1993 until 2014, the race was held at the Chrysalis Academy and ran up the mountain through the SANParks Tokai Forest Plantation. This route was devastated in a mountain fire in 2015, and since 2015 the race has been held at the Cape Academy of Maths and Science in Firgrove Way.
The new route through the Tokai Greenbelts has proven to be popular and is now the new route for the Tokai Manor House Run. An 8 km option was added in 2016.
