RUN IS PROUD TO BE APART OF THIS YEARS HEX SKYRUN
In the year 1768, after the first farm houses had been built in the Hex River Valley, one of the occupants was a beautiful girl named Eliza Meiring. It is said that her beauty was so profound that she set any would-be suitor the initial task of bringing her a disa from the inaccessible precipices of the 2249-m Matroosberg, the highest peak of the Hex River Valley. This almost impossible task was set to deter unwanted admirers.
However one young man whom Eliza favoured set out to surprise her by securing a disa. His daring attempt ended badly as he fell and was killed. Her shock deranged the fair Eliza and she had to be locked in an upper room of the house. One night whilst trying to force a window open in order to escape she slipped and was killed.
It is said that her spirit has wandered the peaks of Matroosberg ever since. She was called The Witch of Hex River Valley.
