Begin with a loop through historic Stellenbosch and leave the town with the R310 past Spier Estate and turn left into the Annandale Rd just before the 14km mark, which is the lowest point on the route. The Annandale Rd is an undulating stretch of 5km, to reach the R44. Turn right and follow the R44 to Somerset West where the Steynsrust bridge is used to cross the R44. Coming back along the R44, just past the 32km mark, runners turn right at Louw-se-Bos and join up with the half marathon route, back to the finish. The last 2km is slightly downhill, leveling off before the finish at Eikestad Primary School.
Start at Eikestad Primary School, do a loop through Krigeville and then head out on the R44 towards Somerset West. At about the 11 km mark turn left into Stellenrust Rd. The next 5 km is gravel and mostly uphill. Getting back on the tar at about 16 km there is a short, steep downhill section before the course levels out to a less steep section. This section takes runners back to the R44. From here it is about 2 km to the finish at Eikestad Primary.
