About the event

RMB Ultra-trail Cape Town® hosts a variety of trail races that traverse the beautiful mountain trails of the Cape Peninsula. Cape Town is a world-class destination featured on many trail runners' bucket lists. The Mother City is shaped by two oceans and Table Mountain National Park, a dramatic mountain chain that stretches from Table Bay in the north to Cape Point in the south. The Event offers a distance to suit every trail runner - 100 miler, 100km, 55km, 35km and 23km.The UTCT 100 miler takes participants from the northern mountain range of the Mother City to the more remote southern mountains, taking in additional trails from Silvermine to Kalk Bay, Kommetjie, Simonstown and beyond. The route has 7 516m of vertical gain.
The other races traverse sections of the northern mountain range, including Table Mountain, Lion's Head, Signal Hill, 12 Apostles trail, Llandudno, Hout Bay, the Constantia Winelands, the upper slopes of Kirstenbosch Nature Reserve, and Devil's Peak. These sections form part of the iconic natural world heritage site and one of the Natural Seven Wonders of the World.

All our races cover technical terrain with steep ascents and descents. The weather conditions can vary drastically, despite the Event taking place in late November (summer in the Southern Hemisphere), with single-digit temperatures in the early morning on top of Table Mountain to 30 degrees plus during the latter part of the day.
All five races are genuine mountain excursions over some highly technical trails. The necessary care, respect and precautions must be taken when running within Table Mountain National Park and its surrounds.

55 km

A beautiful / epic race! UTCT is one of the best endurance events I have taken part in. A true festival of trail running, with multiple distances and an epic race village. the 55km race is certainly challenging but the views and scenery make it so worth it. Highly recommended!
