Franschhoek Wine Valley

French Corner Run

The inaugural event of the French Corner Run, in aid of the ACVV Franschhoek, took place on 8 November 2014.

This year’s event is scheduled for 21 November 2015 starting at The Huguenot Monument

There will be a 5km and 10km run/walk starting at 7h00. The event has the cooperation of the Stellenbosch Municipality which includes the traffic, fire and police departments, as well as the support of The Franschhoek Wine Valley Tourism.

The 10km route traverses the farms of Grande Provence, Mont Rochelle and La Couronne and they kindly assisted with water tables.

The first event had wonderful support and financial aid from many wine farms and local business. The 300 competitors, many helpers and athletics officials had a fabulous time and this event is set to become popular on the road runners’ calendar.
