Experience Darling & surrounds from an unforgettable point of view!

The Darling Brew Trail series is one of the foremost runner’s adventures the West Coast has to offer. Every year, our talented trail developers go above and beyond to create epic routes that venture off the beaten track to take participants into the most beautiful, unspoiled areas around our little hamlet in the scenic Swartland.

Join us this year to run these beautiful and otherwise inaccessible Darling routes in your own time and at your own pace!


Darling Brew Trail will take place on the 30th of October 2021 starting at 06:30. Cape Town sunrise is set at 05:47 on this date in October.


Darling Brew Trail starts and finishes at Darling Brew, 48 Caledon Street, Darling, Western Cape, South Africa.

🦋 21km Arrowhead 🦋
Starting and finishing at the brewery, this route takes you through the Renosterveld reserve to exit Darling, making your way through the beautiful Towers farm and detouring to (arrow)head up the infamous Kapokberg mountain which has some great elevation. Enjoy panoramic views of Darling, the West Coast ocean and Table Mountain before a steep decline into the Darling hills that will take you along jeep tracks and a tricky single track before you wind down past Ormonde Estate back into town.

🦓 14km Rogue Pony 🦓
Start and finish at brew, we take you out through the Renosterveld reserve to exit Darling, making your way through the striking Towers farm and enjoying the various jeep tracks running through the estate’s bushveld “koppies” while catching a glimpse of the ocean along the West Coast. Finally, join in on the 21km route’s single track to wind down past Ormonde Estate back into town.

🐝 7km Pixie Dust 🐝
This race is suitable for the whole family! Walk or run towards the highest reaches of Darling’s topography and run down past Ormonde Estate to enjoy a short climb up some jeep track through farmlands, beautiful vineyards and back down into town.
