“I would just like to thank Corne and his team at Jakhals Events for their stellar work and dedication at the successful Bestmed Eden Street Mile Series down in the Southern Cape over December 2018. Their work ethic and commitment to not only getting the job done but doing it right and in a professional manner. I would happily recommend their services to anyone who needs assistance with events.”

​Mat Dewey

“Their events are well organized. Trail and cycle routes are excellently marked! They cater for all age groups. The events are affordable and are local. The added attraction of a trail run makes them even more fun for the whole family.”
