ORIGIN20 runners will start their journey at Wetlands Game Lodge at 07H00 on Saturday 1st of October. After an initial short uphill warm-up run through the Horse Forest, the route will take participants down to the main gate before a quick climb up and around the Nipple and to the plateaus overlooking Wetlands and the surrounding lands. This is a fast-undulating section which follows the boundary fence before descending to Old Rock Bridge and into the Wetlands Forest . The final climb then takes runners up to to the furthest point of Wetlands and the water point. Here is there where the 50KM runners head through the fence and into Donkerhoek Farm.
Runners now prepare for the final fast and undulating route back into Wetlands and down Horse Hill. The final descent is down an easy and winding jeep track before emerging next to Wetlands trout dam and the last few hundred meters to the finish line.
