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 suit of events including a number of stage races. All our regular events can be entered 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 entries are available. In addition, we host two stage races, the Kruger2Canyon Challenge and The Pondo Trail, set in breathtaking habitats, each with a high conservation significance.
Our pinnacle event 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.
