The enchanting town of Knysna is surrounded by the Outeniqua Mountain range, engulfed by indigenous forests and the protected 21 square kilometre marine reserve, locally better known as the 'Lagoon'.

The Sea 2 Tower is a trail run that starts in the heart of Knysna and finishes at the top of the Knysna Forest 40km away.

A challenging yet beautiful route. Runners will start off at sea level, wind their way up through the Knysna forest, before climbing a 6m steel ladder into the Forest Tower itself.

Finishers will be greeted by the Forest Rangers manning the tower with spectacular views over the surrounding forest, mountains and valleys.
