Here’s a fun way to make headway on your New Year’s Resolutions by boosting your fitness, and help to support a good cause at the same time. Oh, and there is wine involved. Bonus!
Durbanville Hills is hosting a fun Harvest Trail Run on Sunday 19 February in support of the Durbanville Hills Workers Trust. Participants are encouraged to dress up as their favourite superhero (because they consider you a hero to their community) and take part in a 8km trail run in the vineyards.
This is the first Harvest Trail Run in aid of the Workers Trust, and runners will be treated to a scenic route in the winelands with panoramic views of Table Mountain and Robben Island. If you think it sounds too tough, just imagine the cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc you can sip once you’ve hit the finish line. Your entry cost also includes a bottle of wine so that you can celebrate your personal best after the event.
Established in 2000, the Durbanville Hills Workers Trust aims to improve a quality life for employees and their children on the winery as well as surrounding farms. To date, the Trust has established a crèche, improved the facilities at under-resourced rural primary schools attended mostly by children of farm workers and sponsors all farm workers’ children wanting to attend the nearby Durbanville High School. For the adults, life skills programmes are offered on the farms, with farmers providing the necessary facilities and allowing workers time off to attend.
