A Race Against
The Elements

Much like the local Ghost Crabs, participants will need to strategically negotiate the ocean tides, sand dunes, estuaries and river crossings. Leaving only their footprints on this wild terrain, at least until the tide washes them away.

About The Race

The original Wild Coast ultra-endurance event was inadvertently hosted 500 years ago with the wreck of the Sao Joao* near Port Edward. Of the 120 survivors (from an initial crew of 600) only 25 made it back to the outpost of Maputo; to be clear that’s 25 finishers, 95 DNF and 480 DNS – an attrition rate far too low to be a qualifying race for the modern-day Western States 100. The lonely survivors, in their defence, did not have access to our performance gels and bars and resorted to snacking on the local crabs and a leather boot as their main form of nutrition.

Port2Port, a single-stage 100km footrace, follows a marked route across the remote Wild Coast between Port St. Johns and Port Edward. In addition to the Ultra, several “shorter” distances (70km, 45km, 20km and 5km) are available to allow runners of varying capabilities to experience this breath-taking forgotten wilderness.
