  RUN THE VINES 2018  

Run the Vines 2018 series will start in March 2018. Pre-enter to save!

Run The Vines is a series of trail runs that started in March 2015 when the owner of Onsite Events decided to host events that will encourage family and friends, young and old to have a healthy life style by taking part in events that will accommodated all fitness levels.

The fact that the novice runner to the more serious runner can run with family and friends on a different wine farm every month while enjoying the good food, wine, hospitality and live music after their run, surely contributes to the success of the series.

This year runners that pre-enter and pre-pay for all 12 events before the 1st event on the 3th of March 2018 and then run in all 12 events will again receive their 12 bottles of wine (1 from each farm where they ran and finished), after the last run in Feb 2018.

We will again have a bonus (13th) run that participants can use as a substitution run should they not be able to run all 12 runs. Runners are welcome to run all 13 but because of people being sick, having other appointments etc we decided to give them the benefit of the doubt by adding a 13th event to use if they should miss one of the 12. Yes – we are nice people!!

Runners that pre-enter for the series will also receive a T-Shirt to wear to prize giving or at home as part of their series entry. The design will be confirmed soon but it will depict the fact that you entered for all 12 events. This unique shirt will not be for sale to any other runners.

Our 17km distances that was added to the 2017 series seems to be vary popular and we will again have a 17km route at all our events.

Runners can down grade to any distance at any time, but will have to pay the difference should they wish to upgrade.

Dates and distances for 2018 now available. Follow the link below for more information and to enter for the new series.


With Trail Running getting more popular under the youth Onsite Events decided to include a Junior Challenge with our normal Run The Vines Series.

We are proud to announce that Henties Juice will be the main sponsor of this challenge.

Our aim with the Henties Junior Challenge is to introduce Trail Running to more kids under the age of 15. By taking part in these events the
kids will learn to live a healthier and fitter life style while enjoying nature.

Kids can enter the full Challenge of 12 events that will include a bonus 13th event. Only 1st place prizes will be available for the boy’s and girls. No 2nd and 3rd place prizes. The following age groups will be able to take part:

3km U/8 ( Age 5 to 8) – R30   Start: 08:15
3km U/12 (Age 9 to 12) - R30   Start: 08:15
5km U/15 (Age 13 to 15) - R30    Start: 08:00
R20 extra for late entries.

Children over 16 must take part in the normal Run The Vines 5km, 10km or 17km distance. Kids will run on their own under supervision of marshals that will be placed on the route. Parents are not allowed to run with the kids.



The Wagon Trail Night Runs are back! Follow the link below to see dates and details

The Wagon Trail 5km & 10km Night Runs

The very popular Wagon Trail Brewery Night Runs at the beautiful Anura Wine Estate are back on the 10th of January 2018.

The Wagon Trail Night Runs are trail runs that takes place on every 1st or 2nd Wednesday of the month at the spectacular Anura Wine Estate just outside Klapmuts on the R45.

Situated at the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains on the majestic Anura Wine Estate the Wagon Trail Brewery is the latest addition to the Anura collection.



A new addition to the trail is the 2,5km section of single track that runs through the eucalyptus forest on the “koppie” on the farm. We also make sure runners enjoy the beauty of the farm by running a different route every time.

Come and join us for a relaxing run on the farm. After the run you can join us at the Wagon Trail Brewery for prize giving, pizzas, wine, beer and music.

For all updated information please join our Wagon Trail Facebook page. You can also go to for online entries and to make sure about the dates of the events.
