Prize Giving

There will be an informal prize-giving on the day of the event. Prizes will be awarded only to the podium finishers from the 1st batch of each race (these may detract from the final results). Batch lists will be sent out to all online entrants and late entrants will be allocated batches on the day. Batches are limited to 100 entrants.

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!


Please note that there will be no KZNTR KidZone available
