Saturday morning offers the Sportsman's Warehouse Trail Run, with routes varying between 9km and 18km winding through picturesque private forests and farmlands. Trail runners who are still starting out can opt for the 5km route. Don't forget to pre-enter at www.edenxperience.co.za and obtain automatic entry into the Pentravel Holiday Competition.
This lucky draw gives you the chance to win a seven-night holiday in Phuket for two adults and one child.
