About

The ABAX Investments Milkwood Run is staged at the Soetwater Resort behind Kommetjie on the southernmost west coast of the Cape. The 21.1km scenic route winds its way along the coast from Kommetjie to Scarborough with magnificent views of the coast line.

There is two other route option a 10km and 5km fun run, that runners are also able to take in the beauty of coast line.

We have embraced the ethos of a GREEN event, with no littering on route and runners are rewarded with a tree sapling at the finish.

ABAX Investments Milkwood Run attracts both sponsorship and runners from all over Cape Town and even out of town runners.

2017 race is Sunday 5th March 2017

Race History

It was 2004 that Harfield Harriers hosted the race first. Will Bolus and Adam Kane-Smith were a subcommittee tasked in 2003 with trying to grow the profile for Ha Ha by hosting a race. Adam Kane-Smith attended a few of WPA meetings and made it known that Ha Ha was keen to have its own race. At the time the hosting of multiple races by the bigger clubs was an issue. Also a problem was the availability of weekends for races and the high demand for the summer and pre Oceans weekend slots.

When the Milkwood had to be cancelled in 2003 due to an unforeseen clash with an Argus warm up cycle race the organisers and club who had hosted lost the right to host it again and Ha Ha was offered the opportunity to pick up the race on condition that we could host it with 6 weeks’ notice and on Sunday the 25th of July 2004.

It was thanks to some amazing energy by a group of dedicated Ha Ha’s that the whole thing, including sponsorship and a new race route was pulled together in time.

To our great relief people turned up on the day and in the end more than 1,200 runners took part in the inaugural Ha Ha hosted Milkwood.

Following that success Ha Ha became the official hosts of the Milkwood and the second race we hosted took place less than 9 months later on Sunday the 10th of April 2005, in appalling conditions. In the years which followed and in mixed weather conditions the race grew in stature and popularity, despite the occasional locked gate and adverse weather conditions.

We have always embraced the ethos of a GREEN event, with no littering on route and runners are rewarded with a tree sapling at the finish.

Sustainability

With the Milkwood Run route taking place along our beautiful coast and very close to Cape Point Nature Reserve. The unnecessary waste and litter is something we are against. We are dedicated to maintaining a clean race and preserving the beauty of our coast and surrounding area that we run in.

At each water station there won't be any plastic sachets. Runners will have the option to use one of the paper cups available or we encourage runners to carry there own cup or bottle that can be refill quickly at one of the self-serve water stations set up along the route.

The other bonus using a cup or bottle, is that you can sip water way past the aid station, instead of having to drink the entire cup before you leave the water station. You can drink as you need, and you don't get that big hit to your stomach.
