ROUTES

where do we start:

The start and finish is at Teza, just after the small village and before the Teza tea factory: 

Link to start and finish location in Google Maps

From the tarmac Google Maps doesn’t show the most easy route. Take the shortest route instead (it will be indicated as well). It’s off road, but any car can get there. If anyone asks just let them know you are with the Teza Trails group. We also have people that will watch our cars and they will be paid by us, so please don’t pay anyone there unless you’re buying something.

THE LOOPS for Saturday - hike or run:

We’ve created three different loops all on dirt roads or trails. You can do:

Be aware that there will be police, military, park rangers and doctors on the spot. They are all arranged via us and they are there to help us. Besides this we are in close contact with local authorities, OTB and OBPE.  

This event is a hike/run and not a race, so it’s not about time. We have indicated areas with red flags where we only allow you to walk in order to detect a log bridge or because the trail is wet. Our main consideration is having everyone back without serious injury.

Please be aware that it’s a trail run, hike or bike. At some parts vegetation will be high or at other parts it will be rocky or the route will be wet. Your shoes may get wet and if you wear shorts, you risk crossing the finish line with some scratches. You are all taking part at your own responsibility.

We will have multiple start waves in order to spread the participants a bit. Runeers start first and at the same time.

The route is above 2000 masl with 380 m elevation gain (11.5 km route), 580 m elevation gain (18 km route) or 780 m elevation gain (24 km route), depending on the loops you take.  

You can do any combination of loops or take cut offs as you prefer. No need to inform us. 

We will have cutoff times for both hiking and running. We do this in order to give all volunteers the chance to enjoy the buffet as well. If you are hiking, the maximum distance is 18 km. 

  • Cut off time for starting another loop hiking: 13:15h (normally you should be able to do two loops)
  • Cut off time for starting a new loop running: 13:45h (normally you should be able to do three loops)
 

We’ve signposted the routes (putting a marker at least every 500 meters) and we have volunteers at crucial points, but we can’t guarantee that people won’t remove one of the markers or that you miss one. So please pay attention or there is a chance that you may end up off track.

You can download the maps before via maps.me which will help you if you get lost. It’s wise to have a print screen of the routes on your phone. We will send this to everyone. If you don’t have your phone with you, ask for “usine de thé” and people will help you. The finish is close to the factory. 

The GPX-files are available on request. And maps.me is a great app to use for navigating in Burundi! 

Please note: Loop 1 goes through Kibira National Park.We add a short loop to see beautiful waterfalls. Be aware that it is optional and might require extra time. Some people are not allowed to enter the forest due to safety measures from their organization. If this applies to you or you don’t want to go into the forest, you can start with loop 2 or 3.
