MaxiRace 2019

The MaXiRace Cape Winelands is a festival of trail running that will take place in the iconic Cape Winelands area between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch on 05-06 October 2019. This weekend of trail will cater for beginner’s to the sport of trail running offering an entry level race of 18km to the hard core mountain runners that will attempt to conquer a 100km. This event is designed to attract new blood into the sport of trail and is a project designed to benefit the communities that the route will traverse through. Edunova is privileged to be the charitable and empowerment partner to MaxiRace in South Africa. The goal is for partners to work together to create an event that will have maximum impact on the great community and bring an educational aspect of the “Alpine Culture” to the community at large. Athletes can make a donation to this education work when entering the event on the MaxiRace website or can apply to run in the colours of Edunova and use this platform to raise additional funding for the schools along the route.

The story behind it

Edunova has worked with Pure Adventures to bring the MaxiRace to South Africa.

Engaging with various community and education partners to ensure maximum inclusion for a wide range of stakeholders has underpinned much of the MaxiRace philosophy and will enable those local to the event to take part on the day but also on an ongoing basis. Using events such as the MaxiRace allow for capacity building, skills development, health awareness, fitness and employment to take place.

Edunova is proud to be able to spearhead this activity.
