KZNTR’s home Howick trails, to the beach – upcoming trails to explore!

Dear Trail Runners and Walkers,


As many of you know, KZN Trail Running is proudly involved in the organising of The WildSeries 3 Cranes Challenge, being held next weekend. It’s a 3 stage adventure in the Karkloof, that both Andrew and I have had the privilege of participating in over the years.



Our day events continue on Saturday 3 March, with the Howick Trail Run. Also set in the Karkloof just outside Howick, we love showcasing our sublime home trails!  This is a collaboration between KZNTR and the Howick Mountain Bike and Trail Running Club and as usual there’s an event to suit every age, ability and fitness level.

The following weekend sees us head to the lush Blythedale Coastal Estate. The Blythedale Trail Run explores the coastal forest, teeming with birds and antelope and the medium and long courses include a section of beach running. The sandy tracks make this event a bit of a challenge, but the sweeping coastal views will distract you and the shady picnic site a welcoming sight at the finish!
