The 1000 Hills Challenge is one of our longest standing premier events. Having been running for years before we even conceptualized the “Big 6”, it was a no brainer that it would join the prestigious group to complete this line up of bucket list experiences.
Taking place at the stunning Msinsi Nagle Dam just 40 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, it is the most accessible of the premier events, in terms of location, distances offered and event infrastructure. Participants can choose from 5, 10, 20 and 38km, the 5km having being introduced 2 years ago with the intention of opening up the event to a wider range of trail enthusiasts, and together with the 10km is well suited for most abilities and fitness levels of both runners and walkers.
The 38km has a well-deserved reputation for being a real tester. Trail warriors can expect a good dose of hills and technical variety, but the effort is well worth the reward of the achievement! Not to mention the sheer, raw beauty of the valley.
See you on the trails,
Andrew, Lauren and the KZNTR Trail Team
