Want to join us for a run?

We host FREE weekly community trail runs

Join us every Thursday for Stellies Shake Out (SSO), a free group trail run that takes place in Stellenbosch.

Being our original weekly running group, SSO attracts like-minded (trail-loving) students and working professionals alike.

There are 3 regular pacing groups to choose from: Hasty Hares (fast), Kale Blazers (medium), and finally *Cheeze* and Wine (easy). On occasion, the Red Hot Chilli Steppers (our walking group) makes an appearance, but if you’re new to the group (and especially the trails) we suggest that you join once you are able to maintain a jog at a leisurely pace on trail terrain.

The main venue’s start is at Coetzenburg Centre at 17h30 in autumn / winter and 18h00 in spring / summer. We then explore the trails on Stellenbosch Mountain for an hour before returning to the start for a chat about that evening’s adventures over an ice cold sponsored Stellenbrau craft beer (non-alcoholic option available).

We do start at alternative venues from time to time, including; Eden Forest, Banhoek Conservancy, and Idas Valley Nature Reserve (amongst others). This will always be announced on social media ahead of time, so please keep yourself up to date especially if you missed the previous week’s run where it may have been announced in-person.
