17th Grootbrak Grabadoo – what a way to bid 2019 farewell!

The 17th Grootbrak Grabadoo will take place on Tuesday, 31 December 2019.

Runners, walkers, families and even pets can participate in the most beautiful walk in the Garden Route around the Great Brak River in a 4.8 km route.

Mountain bikers can choose from 4 exciting routes which include some wonderful twists and turns in the forest – 15 km, 36 km, 53 km, and 71 km.

Last year a record number of just over 1 300 participants took part.  “Most of the participants are visitors to the Garden Route,” said Mimi Finestone of interface by goji, who started the event 17 years ago with a friend.

The MTB starts at 07:00, with the different distances starting at three-minute intervals, and the fun walk/run starts at 07:15.
