Summer Series kicks off at Dusi Trails, Bushman’s Trail 2020 dates and Drakensberg Trails Project update

Summer Series 2019 begins at Dusi Trails!

This weekend we kick off Summer Series 2019 in a wild way – Dusi Trails beckons and we are ready for the escape! Taking you through the beauty of dense bushveld, Euphorbias and aloes where some steep climbs await and wildlife spectators roam.

Three courses of 6km, 12km and 20km will bring a race for every trail enthusiast! Walkers are welcome on the 12km and 6km courses, while the long course is a solid challenge for the seasons trail runners out there!

Pre-entries close at midday on Friday 1 November. Late entries will be available, but the R50 late entry fee applies (doesn’t apply to U18s though!).

KZNTR KidZone available for kids (2yrs+)

We are stoked to have PURA Soda on board again as our hydration partner for the Summer Series! Each participant can expect and ice-cold, colourant-free refreshment on the finishline.

The race village will await you post-trail for some Sunday chill time! Fully stocked with great food, top-class coffee, trail gear and plenty more.

Join us for a trail and a catch-up!

Drakensberg Trail Project Update

We have submitted our concept document to Ezemvelo (the basics were posted on Facebook and thereafter formalised things ) and we hope to meet with the Ezemvelo roleplayers soon.

We believe that it was received with enthusiasm, which is hugely positive! Following meeting, we will hopefully be able to look closely at training requirements and getting the first volunteer group up & running – we are optimistic that this will be towards the end of 2019 / early 2020.

When we have clarity, we will put a call out for our first volunteer group, but lets not get too far ahead of ourselves as there is still some admin to be done!

Thanks to everyone who has supported the project thus far and if anyone has any more resources they would like to put into the project or find out more, check out the Facebook page – link below!
