Kenneth Stainbank is Back!

KZNTR Trail News Apr 2023 - Image 4.jpg

Dear Trail Runners and Walkers,

Everyone loves a comeback-kid, and when it’s to a venue as much-loved as Kenneth Stainbank, the gees is higher than ever!

KZNTR last hosted an event at Kenneth Stainbank Reserve in January 2020 and wow has a lot happened since then…

Most recently, the reserve experienced extensive damage to the road infrastructure during the 2022 floods, limiting access and making the longer routes currently inaccessible (but we are hopeful this could change!!). Despite this and detrimental effects on the river health, the Reserve remains very popular with hikers, trail runners and MTBers.

As our natural environment struggles to balance the affects of the developing world, “green lungs” such as this one close to cities are more important than ever. Not only do we look forward to supporting fund raising efforts for the ongoing maintenance and management of the Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve, but providing opportunities for people to escape the business and stress of city life is core to what we do at KZNTR.

What to expect?
Purpose-built single-track traverses through grasslands and coastal forest that has established in what was a historical farm and look out for the resident zebra and antelope.
All courses are fast and runnable and walkers welcome!
