Race Information


Our partners, SMF Events, are adept at designing all sorts of levels of enjoyable MTB races, half marathons and trail runs for the novice and seasoned athletes.


Friday, 15 June

The Napier Wine & Patatfees kicks off on Friday afternoon with a 3KM Fun Run at 5pm that is organised by our local SAPS. So if you are keen to participate, registration is from 2pm at the school.

Late registrations for the main MTB races & marathons will be open at the skills school on the Friday afternoon from 4pm – 8pm. Be sure to get a good night’s rest for the fun the next day.

MTB and Half Marathons

Saturday, 16 June

For those who are up for the challenge and prefer pedal power, there are 55K, 45k, 30k and 15K MTB races and for others who rely solely on their two feet to get them from A-B, there are 21K, 10K and  4K fun-runs to navigate. These routes have been designed to take you through some of the loveliest scenery in the Overberg.

55km | 45km | 30km | 15km

21km | 10km | 4km

Registrations open again from 6am for MTB and Half Marathons in the main hall at the Skill’s school.

The prizes alone are worth entering for! R100K Lucky Draw for the MTB winners and R30K Lucky Draw for the runners!

Other Fun Races

With so much interest in the Paralympics, we have also designed a Wheel Chair Race and for any Mum’s or Dad’s with toddlers, we end the day’s races at noon with the cutest race of all, the Nappy Dash!

So after you receive your medal, go and explore the village and don’t forget the carnival and concert on Saturday night!

Trail runs

Sunday, 17 June

The Trail Runs really get your heart pumping and are a superb way of taking in the sights around Napier and the Soetmuisberg.

There are 28K, 18K and a gentler 8K Trail run with prize money of 30K Lucky draw for the winners.

Registration starts at 7am at the Skills school and allow 20 min before the start for transport on a short bus ride to the starting point.

After the races on Sunday, we have a treat in store. To celebrate our 25th anniversary  we are extending our market and live entertainment at the Skills School. Sunday is also Fathers day, so come and sit back with a cold beer and enjoy a Boerewors roll and listen to some laid back vibes, whilst the rest of the family browse the stalls? We also have a lot of fun planned for our kiddies. Keep checking our Facebook page and Twitter, #NapierWinePatat, for updated details. There’s bound to be a party atmosphere, so please join us for the fun.

Did I mention it is Father’s Day? Why not treat yourself and your family? Put your feet up and relax at one of our many wonderful restaurants for a leisurely lunch. Even better lengthen your stay and stick around an extra night! Why rush back to the City?
