KZNTR is a trail running company based in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. We aim to provide world-class trail running events across our beautiful province. Our events range from an easy 5km to mountainous 50km courses and KZN’s first 100 Mile Endurance Foot Race. With something from the beginner through to the seasoned trail and mountain runner, KZNTR has a full suite of events including a number of stage races. All our regular runs and hikes can be booked through this website, but we have a number of other websites for our premier events. We host two single-day Mountain Challenges every year, namely Lesotho Ultra Trail and Drakensberg Northern Trail. These events have their own websites where bookings are available. In addition, we host the Kruger2Canyon Challenge, a staged race set in the breathtaking habitats of the Kruger National Park and Northernmost reaches of the Drakensberg Mountain range.

Our pinnacle race is the Karkloof 100 Miler which takes place in September each year on the closest Saturday to Heritage Day in South Africa.

We offer incredible outdoor experiences to anyone keen and willing. We are passionate about what we do and uncompromising when it comes to producing incredible trail experiences in a safe environment. Each of our runs/hikes are described on their respective race pages on this website. You can see a list of upcoming runs on the left-hand side or view the calendar by clicking on it or here.
