Merrell Whale of Trail Postponed



Merrell Whale of Trail will host 2 events in 2021 following the postponement of the 2020 edition due to COVID19.

We have taken the time over the past month to try to get an understanding of how things will progress with the COVID-19 restrictions and what the future will be like for events. Currently the situation in South Africa is critical, with case numbers rising in all corners of our country. We are sympathetic to effects this pandemic is having on everyone.

Considering all the factors, we feel it is prudent to postpone the 2020 Whale of Trail event to 16 Jan 2021, when we hope things will have stabilised. We avoid the congested Sep-Nov 2020 period and provide an event at a time when traditionally there is very few ultra events.

We are excited at the prospect of staging a Whale of Trail that will provide different conditions to those normally experienced during the traditional time slot of July / August. The event in January will be mid-summer and heat will play a significant role.

We still have entries available for the next event on the 16 Jan 2021. See website for details and entry form.

The 2021 Whale of Trail will be stage in the traditional time spot of July / August 2021.
