Running The Winelands


Muratie and Delheim – Vineyards

I just spend a whole week in my hometown Stellenbosch, Cape Town. It is one of the most beautiful towns in South Africa. The weather did not quite play along and I had to let go of the idea of running  Jonkershoek mountain so opted to go play in the beautiful and famous vineyards of Muratie and Delheim (Route 44)!

Muratie and Delheim – MTB/Trails

I somehow got lost and ended up on the MTB trails…what a feast!

I must admit I was honestly surprise with the beauty of these two wine farms. There is so much more to explore, one day is not enough…will definitely go back in December when I have more time. I’d like to do the trail run up the mountain. Apparently the views are fantastic!

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
