After the success of last years inaugural Applewood Harvest Festival and Tru-Cape Trail Running Challenge, our community has decided to make this an annual event and invite everyone near and far to come and join us again to celebrate the end of a busy season of harvesting the fruits of our labour!

The apples will be off the trees and Elgin is celebrates with a day of adventure and some wholesome Autumn farm-fun.  All fresh air fitness enthusiasts, outdoor lovers and their families are invited to Applewood Harvest Festival and Tru-CapeTrail Running challenge, a 11km trail through the beauty of the surrounding farmlands, whilst families can participate in a gentle 5km fun run. The scenic courses will take you though the apple and pear orchards that make up the beautiful environment of this country based school. It’s a great race for both beginning and experienced trail runners! There will be cash prizes for the first three men and women in the 11km and a fun prizes from a lucky draw for the 5km Fun Runners. The 11km race starts at 08h30 and the 5km Family Fun Run starts at 09h00.

There will be Harvest Festival at the end of the race, which will be filled with apple-themed activities and the best of Elgin’s gourmet artisanal and farm-grown produce. Expect fine fare from local restaurants The Poolroom, Hickory Shack and Peregrine (to name a few) and the best of craft cider and Elgin wines. Master an apple tasting, buy apple pies and apples by the bag and let the kids run free. There will be lots of entertainment for bith young and old from live music to hay-diving, zip-lining, scarecrow building and apple hunting as well as loads of beautiful crafts and goodies from local makers.
