About the Tokai Manor House Run

Southern Striders hosts the annual Tokai Manor House Run (16 km) on the 26th of December. Participating in this race is popular with both locals and visitors because it takes place during 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. Unfortunately a mountain fire devastated this route in 2015. As a result since 2015 the race has been held at the Cape Academy of Maths and Science in Firgrove Way. 

All proceeds of this race are donated to the Academy.

The route through the Tokai Greenbelts has proven to be very popular and is now the new route. An 8 km option was added in 2016.

If you would like to take part in this scenic run during December, join our club now and start training with us.
