Countdown to the Karkloof100
With only 2 weeks until the 4th edition of the Karkloof 100 Miler excitement in running high. The entries into both the 50 Miler and 100 Miler close today at midnight, after which we will not be accepting any further entries.
The other thing happening today which is something to get very excited about in the Launch of the Karkloof100 Race App. It will serve at the 2020 race “bible” and will have detailed info for runners and crew alike. The timing of this additional piece of tech in the race is perfect as it will serve to clear up any confusion that has come to the fore through this confusing period associated with COVID.
The App will also allow us to interact with all the participants, crew, and fans in a new way with things like Batch selection and camping options.
The App will launch this evening, so download it and engage with KK100 in a brand new way!

Uitsoek takes the stage
Uitsoek is another lekker event that WILL take place in 2020, 10th of October to be exact. Set just outside Nelspruit in the Drakensberg Mountains, the 40km Mountain Marathon is a true mountain challenge. The 20km is much more manageable, but not without its climbs, while the 10km winds its way only through the forests set at the base of the mountain range. All 3 courses visit the most incredible waterfall where Uitsoeks’ signature Aid-Station is located. As with all events now, entries are limited.
It was literally the perfect race for KZNTR to make its comeback into the world of real events.
The field was trimmed down somewhat, but it made for a classic Mnweni atmosphere and a very personal finish line.
The winning performances were also impressive with Warrick Mac Nicol 4hrs 52 mins and Kate Birkett in 5hrs 33mins
In addition to this, every single starter finished the course they started!
No doubt the future of this legendary race is bright even if this year was an anomaly. In 2021 there will be two events held in May and Spring as had been planned for 2020, with the Spring event being the no-frills version.
