KZN Trail Running

Table Mountain Trail Run

13 January 2019

Course Details

Start time: 7:45am | Walkers Welcome.

Water tables: 1 table on route.

The 7km course is challenging due to the ascent up the mountain – even the top racing snakes are reduced to a walk! The trail on top the mountain is a network of cattle tracks that and the course traverses half of the mountain edge before cutting back through the middle along a beautiful wetland and stream.

The 12km course completely circumnavigates the mountain and involves significantly more ascent and descent. In sections of the course, the trail disappears and participants have to follow markers through open grassland.

Entry fee includes a R20 donation to the host school and local community trust.

Pietermaritzburg’s Table Mountain is steeped in local folklore including tales of giant snakes and cannibals.  The mountain has served as a refuge for its community throughout history as its cliffs make it easy to defend. The runners will have to make their way up the steep sides and over rocks to summit the mountain where stunning vistas await as they circumnavigate the top. Distant views of Pietermaritzburg and the Umsunduzi River across to the Umngeni River and the hilltop panorama of the Valley of 1000 Hills. The view down onto Nagle Dam is also impressive and on a clear day, the Drakensberg can be viewed from this spectacular vantage point.

Pre-entries close at MIDDAY on Friday, 11th January. Late entries will be available on the day of the event but at a R50 surchage (U18s exempt).

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

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. Juice and snacks provided courtesy of Clicks Howick!
