Weather & Trails
This is the Eastern Free State so any type of weather can be expected so pack for everything. Rain gear is a must since it is rainy season so there might be some rain. 
If rain damage parts of the trails or we deem it unsafe on the trails due to muddy conditions, we will make use of an alternative route. 
 
Water Tables On The Route
On both days there will be two water tables on the route with water, coke, energy drinks and snacks. 
Remember that ultimately it is your own responsibility to stay hydrated so always ensure that you have enough water with you.
