Making advertising easy, effective, and fun
If you want to connect with South African trail runners, you’ve come to the right place. TRAIL readers are adventurous, fun-loving people who place a high premium on being outdoors. They love running, hiking, and being active, fit, and healthy.
TRAIL is digital for the planet (the last print copy was our 35th edition) which allows astute advertisers to get more with their budget.
Our next issue is our 40th and 2021 marks the 10th year of TRAIL, so we are making this a special issue to remember with a redesign to most sections and even more imagery.
Issue 40 is the Jul/Aug/Sep 2021 issue, on sale end June.
Contact Deon for first-time booking specials for our 40th issue.
We collaborate with running brands, events, and service providers to help our readers find reliable solutions that serve their needs.
