Lions River Trail

Midlands Series

Lion's river Trail

10 April 2022

Race Description

Offering scenic riverside trails, farmlands and jeep tracks, the Lion’s River Trail proved a hit last year! The tranquil setting aside, these trails proved a nice little challenge with technical rocky and grassy sections.

Just minutes from the N3, the venue is very accessible and with the River Café on site in the original Lion’s River Trading Post buildings, as well as being surrounded by Midlands attractions, it is the ideal start to a day of meandering!
