In 2022, Darling Brew and Groote Post Winery devised a brand-new trail series that took place along challenging and inspiring routes between Groote Post Winery and Darling Brew

Our talented trail developers created epic new routes that ventured off the beaten track to take participants right through the heart of Darling's Winelands and straight to the beer. 

This means runners get to enjoy the beautiful, unspoiled areas around our little hamlet in the scenic Swartland while they run these beautiful and otherwise inaccessible Darling routes in their own time and at their own pace!


The Vine to Hop Trail Run took place on the 5th of March 2022 starting at 06:45.


Vine to Hop Trail Run started at Groote Post Winery for all 3 race categories. 21km & 14km finished at Darling Brew. The 7km finished at Groote Post Winery.


Our inaugural Vine to Hop trail run would also not have been nearly as epic without the backing of our sponsors & supporters. This includes our 2022 runners – you were on FIRE!

First of all, a BIG thank you to Groote Post Winery, which helped to realise the vision for #VTH2022. You folks are the best! A big shout-out also goes out to our MC, Guy McDonald, and our timekeepers from Chain Gang Events. Thank you one and all for your contribution in the lead-up to the event, on race day, and during the wrap-up phase. We are truly blessed with the best!

We would also like to thank our partners & sponsors:
