Cascades, PMB - INSPIRE Series

PMB trail legend and Southern Lodestar Dream Team member Mdu Zondi has been testing the courses he has laid out for this race over the last few days and he is super-excited to show you what running at Cascades, PMB is all about come 2 October!

The INSPIRE Series is a collaboration between KZNTR and 3 different NGOs well known in the trail running community. We have worked together with the Southern Lodestar Foundation since 2018 in a variety of ways to support their vision of change within communities through nutrition and education, as well as their Dream Team’s running goals.
The SLF Dream Team serves as both an inspiration to our children and an example that, within the SLF and greater South African communities, anything is possible no matter your challenges or circumstances.

Mdu has represented the Dream Team and SLF proudly over the years, placing 3rd in the Karkloof 100 Miler in 2019 and we are proud to be co-hosting this event with him and SLF.

His courses run through the well-known Cascades Trail Park in Pietermaritzburg, which is dominated by amazing purpose-built single track through the local plantations and forests with epic views over the city.

Running from Cascades and up towards the edge of the PMB city bowl, it is no surprise that there is a fair amount of climbing in the first half of all the routes before exhilarating decents back to the Race Village!
Also, Mdu loves a good hill climb… 😉

Table Mountain Trail Run
16 October 2021

Oh boy are we keen to go back to one of our longest-standing and most unique events on the KZNTR calendar – Table Mountain!

If you haven’t ever run this one, trust us and do it! It is a trail experience, a cultural experience and just a downright spectacular mountain!

What makes it this way is the venue, school, community and mountain…. the local flair and dancing, beat of the drums and views to the ocean and mountains. Running along clifftops overlooking Nagle Dam, down into the uMzunduzi River, past wetlands and sunken forests.

These are the kind of things that cannot be manufactured at an event, but rather have to come together to make the morning out on PMB’s Table Mountain a top experience.

In the past KZNTR and the trail community have contributed towards a security hut and school desks for the host venue,, Mcoseleli Secondary School.

This year we are working together with Expanda Sign and the Uzwelo School Bag Project to deliver bags to the school goers. Read about Uzwelo HERE – we think you will agree that it is an incredible story, and watch our social media channels for the option to Donate a Bag!
