WARNING: UNREST EXPECTED IN THE JONKERSHOEK VALLEY THIS WEEKEND

Yesterday, in an events permit meeting chaired by Colonel Conradie of the Stellenbosch Municipality, the Wildrunner team was alerted to a resurgence in unrest activity in the Jonkershoek Valley.  Wildrunner was informed that this unrest is expected to escalate this coming weekend, beginning on Friday 27th April.  As such we wish to caution runners planning any training activity in the Jonkershoek Valley to make use of alternative trails until such a time as any potential threat has passed. We remain in regular communication with authorities and communities in the area, and will continue to update you any impact this may have going forward. The 2018 JMC will proceed as planned unless we are instructed otherwise by the Stellenbosch Municipality. Should this occur, we would like to assure you that an alternative date will be tabled and we will update all participants clearly and timeously.
