We look forward to better days, with the freedom to move through our local trails.

WildSeries Races raise funds critical for the maintenance and conservation efforts in the reserves that host the events. The Golden Gate Challenge specifically raises funds for the conservation of the Bearded Vulture, amongst others such as the threatened Cape Vulture.

The world has changed and so must we at KZNTR make our adaptations……
Our first event that we will be hosting using a “non-crowd” method with be at Phezulu Trail on 21 June 2020.
Instead of gathering as a crowd, trail runners will be let off as individuals or in small batches, arriving just in time for a quick registration before heading off.
We are busy working on the exact protocols in place, but ensure you they will be world-class and inline with laws and regulations. 
Book your starting slot from Friday 17 April at 10am when they open!
