The Bushman’s Trail has been established in collaboration between KZN Trail Running and the Estcourt Athletics Club. With the race village located at Wagendrift Dam just off the N3 in Estcourt, it is highly accessible from both Durban and inland. Offering a lifestyle weekend away, or individual day entries, there are multiple distances on each day to structure your own stage race!

Registration

Registration opens on Friday at 5pm and closes at 7pm with the informal evening run taking place at 5.30pm.

Registration will also be open on Saturday from 6am and Sunday from 5am for those arriving on the day or running only one of the stages.

Services

A variety of services will be available offering gourmet food and beverages, exciting entertainment and an adventurous weekend away in the bush.

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

Notes

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!

Ezemvelo fee of R20 for Adults and R10 for children under 12 is payable at the entrance to the Wagendrift Dam (Wild Card = Free Entry).

Please take note that meals are not included in the ticket entries but service providers will be on site selling food and beverages.

Accommodation

Accommodation is not included in any of the entries. Camping can be booked seperately on the entry form. Two options are available. Either tented accommodation (tent and mattress provided only) or self camping (campers  to provide all own equipment). Please note that each night needs to be booked seperately.

You also have the option of booking your self camp-site directly through Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife. For more information and booking  call 072 800 3893.

The campsite is the same, regardless of whether you book directly through Ezemvelo or through KZNTR.
