LAUNCHING: KZNTR Winter League! Plus half price Barn Owl Trail and KZNTR merch now at Trail Shed

KZNTR Winter League launches...

Dear Trail Runners & Walkers,

We have seen it all in the last few months. Every inch of our gardens, rediscovered our neighbourhoods and now we dig deep into the backyard trails in every corner of KZN! You’ve shown us your incredible support. You’ve set examples, shown us your determination and above all your solidarity has helped glue the local trail community together.

Until we can meet our community for an old-school (will ALWAYS be cool) “event”, we have something new to bring to you…

KZNTR’s Virtual Winter League!
Based on the WESSA uMngeni Valley trails, you can run the actual route, or match it km by km, meters climbed by meters climbed on your own local trails. Here is how it works:
Match the WESSA trails on your home trail OR book to run in the reserve

  • Match or exceed the distance and climbing (elevation gains) of the WESSA routes (3km, 5km, 15km, 21km)
  • Run it every weekend in July (Sat or Sun)
  • Submit your results through a screenshot of strava / a picture of your watch / link to your Strava activity
  • Official virtual race and prize giving start broadcast LIVE every Sunday
  • Results will be available on the KZNTR website
  • Prizes for overall winners and run all 4 to get your league badges & certificates
  • Costs:
    1. Full league entry (all 4 virtual events)
    2. Adults – R250ppn, or R75 per “event”
    3. U18s – R75 or R25 per event

*Should you choose to run at WESSA you will need to book and pay for a slot as well.
