TRAIL RUN

This three-stage trail run series, with day and night runs, has become more and more popular as the sport of trail running and running in general has grown in South Africa.

The concept of putting three 20km stages into a two-day period is one that is both exciting and grueling, but interesting for runners to test their mettle. The night run stage is technical, and runners need to be adept at running with headlamps and dealing with cold conditions.

There are no strict entrance requirements, and runners can enter a single stage out of the three on offer, should they so wish. The organisers also offer a trail-running workshop, and early-entry bonuses for this event.
