Previous winners

E-mail Print PDF

Two previous winners will line up on Saturday.

Three time winner SanMari Woithe (who was part of the sweep team last year) will be looking for her 5th finish and 4th win, while Grant Wolff who took overall honours last year will be pushing to retain his title.

Predictions are for quick times with a section of the rocky ankle-twister having been smoothed. No doubt the hill will still stretch lungs!

2010 Hylton Dunn 3:30:10
2011 Christo Muller 3:25:13

Heritage Picture Framers (Main Road, Walmer, Port Elizabeth – next to Preston’s) are busy framing Baviaanskloof Trail Run Legend Awards as well as one of Alan Ainslie’s latest works, ‘Cheetah Flight’.
If you want to see what your framed Alan Ainslie Legend Award looks like ‘in the flesh’ pop down to Heritage as there is a framed award on display. You can also have a look at ‘Cheetah Flight’, all 1000 mm x 650 mm of it.  Incidentally, Heritage is South Africa’s oldest picture framing business, established in 1895.

Conversation stopper

E-mail Print PDF

There is only one hill on the Baviaans route. Well, one hill and a few undulations. The hill is known as something of a 'conversation stopper' *

Baviaans hill 1

Image : Anthony Bernard

The photograph above, taken on the way home from above the scree section, shows a thin line going from the floor of the kloof bottom right up to the ridge line. A stairway to Baviaanskloof heaven.

* 'Conversation stopper' (term) used by Darrell's early morning Hillcrest Villagers training group when running around Westville in the early 80s. One of the group was blind, and could pick up when they were approaching a hill, as the group prepared itself.... and conversation stopped.


Alan Ainslie - Wilderness Sculptor and Painter

E-mail Print PDF

At the 2012 Baviaanskloof Trail Run a number of runners and spectators looked admiringly at the two black Rhino bronzes and the black Rhino prints brilliantly crafted by wilderness sculptor and painter Alan Ainslie.

There were a number of questions as to what else Alan has done. Well, here is a glimpse at some of this highly talented artist's other works.
