To run a race in the Magoebaskloof forests is not an easy logistical undertaking. We have gone the extra mile to make sure that you have the most pleasant racing experience at the Magoebas Forest Marathon.
We have come up with 3 solutions to make sure that you get to the race venue, Debengeni Falls, in a pleasant and efficient way on the 20th of March 2022.
GETTING TO AND FROM THE RACE VENUE
3 OPTIONS TO GET TO AND FROM DEBENGENI FALLS
PARKING AT THE FALLS
Due to limited space at Debengeni Falls, there will only be a very limited number of parking spots available at the race. Only 20 spots to be precise.
Because of the exclusivity of these parking spots, they will be charged R 200 per parking spot.
These parking spots can be purchased through your race entry on Entryninja. Just go to your entry, find the parking under "merchandise", add to cart and checkout.
DROP AND GO
The second option to get to and from Debegeni Falls is a drop and go option. There will be a dedicated drop and go spot at the Debengeni Falls. Your support crew can drop and pick you up at this point.
This will require your support crew to drive the 3 km's from the tar road to the drop and go point. A car with good ground clearance is highly recommended, especially in wet conditions. Please see the location of the drop and go point in graphic below.
PARK AND RIDE
The third option available to athletes and spectators/support crew is a park and ride option. There will be two dedicated parking areas close to Debengeni Falls. One at Magoebaskloof Dam and the other at Selati De Hoek Sawmill.
Runners and supporter will be able to get a ride on a shuttle from these parking areas. The shuttles will drop you at the Debengeni Falls.
Shuttle tickets will cost R 100 per person (for a return trip). These can also be added to your entry via Entryninja.
