South Africa’s favourite trail-running export, Ryan Sandes, created Red Bull LionHeart back in 2012. He wanted to showcase what fine trails his backyard has to offer, and formalise (without compromising its core roots, of course) #TamingTheLion, the underground time-trial from the guard hut at the bottom of Cape Town’s iconic Lion’s Head, to the top.
AJ Calitz is two-time defending champion. He reclaimed the title in 2013 by smashing his pervious record with a time of 26:46 minutes (up and down) the 3,7km route. While Landie Greyling owned the women's race.
It all goes down on the 15th of November on Lion’s Head in Cape Town from 8am - 3pm.
Spectators and supporters are welcome on the base of the mountain to watch as 64 men and 32 women battle it out for Red Bull LionHeart elite and intermediate category honours. If you can’t be there, watch the knock-out format race action unfold live here.View the 2014 Results
