Family Friendly

Part of the Pam Golding Wildlife Estate Trail Run Series, the HWE trail run is the first on the list. Set in the exclusive Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate, you can enjoy the company of African fauna whilst walking or running.  Some of the game you are bound to encounter are Giraffe, Zebra, Kudu and if lucky enough you may get to spot something more shy, but we will leave that as a surprise.  This is the first in the series but don’t let this  be the last, to see and enter the full series click here.

Giving Back

The series, being heavily community focused, has some great opportunities for you to contribute towards the environment and runners who otherwise would not have had the exposure to these type of events. A portion of your entry fee will either go towards the conservation fund of the estate or towards a school in need.

Each event will also have a shoe drop box which will allow you to donate old or new running shoes to those who could sorely use a decent pair.
