On 2 December 2017, UTCT will celebrate its 4th year of continued growth, as well as its debut on the Ultra-Trail World Tour. The event, which includes race distances of 35km, 65km and 100km on and around the iconic trails of Table Mountain, continues to feed a rise in the popularity of ultra-distance mountain races. Its position on both the local and international calendar offers the ideal platform for market leader, Salomon, to elevate their continued commitment to creating the next generation of gear and experiences, as well as to enhance the development of trail running in South Africa.
Race director Nic Bornman, “The partnership with Salomon evolved via continued conversation around ‘what’s next’. ‘What’s next’ has been our underlying driver since the races’ inaugural event in 2014.
