The starts next Saturday 05 November 2016 at Faulklands Farm, well known in trail circles for its cliff-top single track and adventurous river crossings!

Initially established in 2009, the KZNTR Summer Series is a collection of three trail running events situated in unique environments within 30km of Pietermaritzburg – Faulklands Farm (Saturday, 05 Nov), Table Mountain (Saturday, 19 Nov) and Hilton College (Saturday, 03 Dec). Each event has something different to offer, from the cliff-top running and adventurous river crossings at Faulklands Farm, to the wonder of the iconic Table Mountain grasslands, wetlands and waterfalls and the beauty of the Umngeni Valley bushveld within the Hilton College Nature Reserve.

These areas are not open to the general public and the KZNTR Summer Series provides one of the few opportunities to access and explore these beautiful environments. Now featuring a long course (20km) in addition to the short and medium courses (7km & 14km)! The KZNTR Summer Series have seen trail runners grow from novice athletes to runners now taking on bigger distances. The short courses are designed as a good entry level, while the medium and long courses throw some challenges at participants, with technical terrain and climbs. The long course starts at 7am to avoid the worst of the summer heat, with the short and medium courses going off at 7:30am.

Set in an old barn on a sugarcane farm on the edge of the Umngeni Valley, the first venue provides the ideal spot to access these beautiful trails, as well as for supporters to enjoy a relaxing morning away from the bustle of daily life.

Exploring Coffee will keep you fed and caffeine levels up.
