Dear Trail Runners & Walkers,

For the second year in a row, we are celebrating the year’s end at the Barn Owl Trail.

Located at the well-known Ground Cover Leather factory & shop in Curry’s Post, the Barn Owl has become legendary in its own right. Designed by the owner, Ryan Solomon, the café has won awards and although we don’t profess to be coffee snobs, we can see why!!

“some of the most beautiful spaces in coffee”
(winner of the Coffee Magazine “Best Café design” 2021)

The alchemy of sublime coffee, locally sourced and delicious food, gorgeous setting, and inspiring design really make this café something special!
But that’s not all…

KZNTR first started facilitating trail on the property owned by Ground Cover post-lockdown and the routes were known to be beautiful but with a bit of a bite…just how we like it!!

So come celebrate the end of the year with us. Run some epic trails, eat some delicious food and let’s be merry!

If you are wanting to sit down in the restaurant for breakfast, we highly recommend booking a table (0828252742). Otherwise, the kitchen will be serving takeaway brekkies and coffees to revive the weariest of souls!

Festive attire is encouraged, but not compulsory… 🎅🏽🌲

Barn Owl Café, Curry’s Post Road
10km | 5km | 2km

See you at the Barn Owl,

 Andrew, Lauren, Sanele & the KZNTR Team
