Shorter and easier, but still requires some steep climbing on your way back out of the valley. Suitable for the active family. Guaranteed game viewing!
This route has an additional descent and climb over and above what the 5km course covers. Some incredible forest and grassland, short section of single track (some purpose cut and other animal track).
One of the toughest 18k around. A great challenge and incredibly rewarding.
All those who take on the challenge will be well rewarded at the finish with a breakfast roll and a breathtaking view over the valley.

A tough race no matter what distance you choose, the 3 courses at Phezulu need to be treated with respect! The routes traverse through a game reserve and animals such as Giraffe, Zebra and Wildebeest are regular spectators on this trail.
The hilltop grasslands are wide open and the valley bush is thick- considering the venue is so close to Durban and Hillcrest, you could not ask for wilder. The Phezulu field team are constantly working on these trails to provide the best tracks possible!
