in Race Village

Shake off the Festive Cheer with a fast-paced trail at the historic ‘Coedmore Castle’, the first KZN Trail Running event of the year!  Located within the green lung of the Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve in Yellow Wood Park, this venue hosts some of the finest running and mountain bike trails within the greater Durban area. The courses range from an easy fun run/walk to a technically challenging long course and serves as a great way to start off a new year with plenty of wildlife to be seen. A portion of the proceeds generated from this event will go towards Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife for conservation purposes as well as to the upkeep of the castle.

Registration and late entries will open at 6:00am and close at 7:30am on the day of the event. Please arrive with plenty of time to process your registration.

Cupless Water Tables

As KZNTR is moving toward the more ecologically friendly cupless water tables, we ask you to please ensure that you bring your own trail cup, water bottles and/or hydration packs for on-course hydration and refills!


KZNTR KidZone will be available for Children (2yrs+). Experienced childminders will allow parents to get out and enjoy exhilarating trails by distracting (and watching over) the little ones with stimulating and fun activities at the Race Village.


The race village will be set next to the Coedmore Castle, bringing you closer to local history. Stay back to enjoy a tour of this masterpiece. There will be a fully stocked race village, where you can expect scrumptious and affordable meals, TrailShed pop-up shop and more!
