2019 – The year of Ultras!


With 2019 just around the corner we have decided to personalize KZNTR mailers further by telling you our trail running story straight from the source. Lauren has written some inspiring stuff in the last two emails, while I ventured down the Wild Coast (Pondo Trail) again. It’s a part of our country I have fallen hard for!


2019 is a biggie for KZNTR because we are going to be celebrating our 10th year in trail running. October 2009 saw us host our first Summer Series and marked the beginning of what has grown beautifully into a recreational sport and community of people seeking out adventure, solitude and time in nature, to name but a few.


2019 will also be the year of the Ultras, not for everyone of course, but the longer distances are growing in popularity as more people find some pleasure in enduring long days on the trail!


The AMUK 400 Mile Challenge, which consists of running 4 x 100 Miler events in 1 calendar year (Addo, UTD, MacMac and Karkloof) has just been launched, Pondo Trail 111km is our new kid on the block and Monties and Lesotho tickets will still be hard to get if you don’t book early enough!


Which brings me to the subject of this mailer. Some big events entries are open and if you want to secure your ticket of choice, act soon!
