Christmas Cheer this Saturday, New Early Bird Rates and Mont-Aux-Sources Challenge 2020 approaches

Get your twinkle toes on – KZNTR's Christmas Run has arrived!

We are ready to start the festive season on right foot, or left, but definitely on the trails!
Starting the event off will be the popular 1km Santa Dash where Santa’s Helpers get to experience some trail fun first hand. Family and friends are encouraged to join in the fun!

The 12km move through the Black Eagle Trail, a local favourite for Andrew and Lauren Booth! Pace yourself for the sting in its tail as you head back to the finish. The 5km will be a perfect option for whole families and trail novices.

Walkers are welcomed on both courses, with headlamps compulsory for both. Although not compulsory, festive attire is highly recommended this Saturday!

This Saturday, it’s not about the race – it’s about the vibe, the fun and the community!

For 2020 Trails

New date for Monties 2020

This prestigious mountain ultra is moving forward to 15 August 2020 and it’s an event you won’t want to miss!

Set in the heart of the Royal Natal Park, it takes participants through the rugged and pure trails of the Drakensberg Range.
Moving through the Mahai Valley up to the escarpment where you will be led to the infamous chain ladders. Then scramble down through the Gully and your journey home will be nearing its end.

It’s a life altering experience, awakening your senses as you stumble, rise up and grow.

2019 saw new additions to this historic event with new cut-offs making your finish more attainable and the move of the race village to the world-class Mahai Campsite encouraging a greater spectator and family vibe.

And 2020 promises to be better, more involved and more rewarding!

Despite budgets being tightened, you can still become part of the experience! Payment plans will be available for the 48hrs opening special. Simply enter online, choose the EFT payment option and finalise your entry. Then pop an email to info@kzntrailrunning.co.za and your payment plan will be arranged.
