Brace yourselves for our second ever trails at Balgowan Trail Run – an adventure promising beauty and excitement at every step. Explore the stunning landscapes of the Michaelhouse reserve, with opportunities to glimpse the elusive Oribi and a myriad of other bird species and wildlife, including a herd of Nguni cattle, as you navigate through untamed grasslands and enchanting NCT plantations. Ascend to the summit of the hill and be rewarded with panoramic views that encompass the shimmering Midmar Dam, the iconic iNhlosane peak, and the majestic Giant’s Castle silhouetted against the skyline. This event is the realization of the Balgowan Conservancy’s vision to raise awareness and support for our precious natural spaces, made possible by the generous hospitality of Michaelhouse and the expertise of KZNTR in organizing trail running events. The Balgowan community eagerly anticipates welcoming you to our cherished valley for a day filled with running adventures.
