2011 Delta Draf

On Tuesday, April 26, the clouds gathered and unseasonably early snow fell on the mountains round Franschhoek. The organizers of the Delta Draf, scheduled for Saturday, April 30, looked at the snow-capped peaks and wondered if they should change the Delta Draf to something else. Maybe the Delta Downhill Skiing Competition? But Saturday dawned bright and sunny and 611 eager runners turned up to compete in what is now a very popular, recognized event in the Boland Athletics calendar.
