If you want to run for a reason - run because you love Boobies! TrailFun has teamed up with ILoveBoobies to bring you the best start to Women's Day you could think of ... trail running and Durbanville Hills Wine.

For the first-timers and easy-going runners you can enter the short Route of 5km, while the seasoned campaigners can have a bash at the longer route of 10km (its a loop). This is an excellent run for those learning to run technical long downhills. Uphills are split to make it easier for beginners but still challenging for those running 10km.

ILoveBoobies is a non-profit company and public benefit organisation that raises funds to give rural South Africa access to mobile health screening clinics across social, physical and economic barriers. Our aim is to pay for 30 screenings, a full day for one Mobile Clinic. There is no additional cost for you, TrailFun will donate a portion of each entry fee to ILoveBoobies - all you have to do is join us for a walk or run and some wine tasting afterwards. ILoveBoobies will have a stand with all their apparel on sale (think amazing socks) and details of where and how donations are used.

Don't miss out on the fun family vibe, excellent lucky draw prizes and lots of Durbanville Hills Wine.
