Following on from our sold-out event in March, we invite you to join us at The Greyton Trail & Yoga Weekend - Winter Edition. The weekend comprises 3 trail runs (short and long options for each) and 4 yoga sessions, and a great line-up of other optional activities, including; talks on running and nutrition, superfood cooking demos, and an opportunity to explore other activities in and around Greyton - all at a price that won’t break the bank. Think epic trails, followed by yoga, hot chocolate by the fireside and warm, hearty food!
In additional to the activities, participants will also receive a generous goodie bags, and stand a chance to win great spot prizes!

The Greyton EcoLodge (ecolodgegreyton.co.za) is a rustic getaway situated on the edge of a nature reserve in the foothills of the picturesque Riviersonderend Mountains. It provides basic accommodation in twin and double rooms, dorm rooms, and offers camping. Bathrooms are shared. It’s the perfect place from which to explore the mountains and escape the rat race of the city.
It would hardly be a relaxing weekend if you had to worry about food! All meals and snacks are included. The menu, prepared by cookbook author Leozette Roode, will be full of healthy and nutritious, but decadent, options that will leave no-one feeling hungry! The focus will be on tasty, healthy, sustainable food options, and all food will be plant-based.
