What is trail running?
Any running where the majority of the terrain is not tarred or paved falls under the banner of trail running. Be it on a single track in the mountains, a jeep track through a vineyard or even a beach.

This section of the website will soon be a mini website of it’s own featuring comprehensive info about trail running and will contain features such as:

  • Full trail running calendar for all advertised local trails and the big multi-stage trails around Southern Africa.
  • Trail kit & equipment
  • Types of trail running
  • Technical techniques and training including videos and advice by professional trail runners
  • Nutrition
  • Links to useful resources
  • Etc.
