Walking from sunrise to sunset
Rustenburg - The Sunrise to Sunset women’s walk is a four-part hike, initiated by a group of enthusiastic women from Rustenburg Adventures Tourism and Accommodation (RATA), a non-profit organisation (NPO).
The walk showcases the diversity of the Magaliesberg biosphere and enables hikers’ exclusive access to areas otherwise not accessible to the public. It also creates awareness of the existing hiking trails, accommodation, entertainment facilities and natural environment of the Rustenburg area.
The opening ceremony will commence on Tuesday 17 March and the official walk of 100km takes place over four days from 18 to 21 March.
This unique women’s walk will cover different areas and geological sites in the Magaliesberg biosphere.
The four routes will cover an average of 25km per day and participants will be required to carry only daypacks with water and snacks. Buses will take the hikers to the starting point every morning before ferrying them back to central accommodation in Rustenburg at night.
Participants may also choose to walk only some of the days at a specific rate. Meals, t-shirts and transport are included in the cost.
The funds raised during this event will go towards RATA NPO and will be used to develop the tourism industry of the area.
Charities that will benefit from the walk this year include the Rustenburg Rotary Club wheelchair project and Walking for school shoes. Entries close on 29 February.
