Read new issue TRAIL 38
Home Authors Posts by TRAIL


An independently-owned South African paper and digital magazine hand-crafted by trail runners mainly in South Africa - but also anywhere else good humans like to feel alive in the vastness of our tiny planet. We love to tell and hear uplifting stories of challenge, temporary defeat, rising against the odds... and eventually, winning. TRAIL's photo-essays with some of the most talented photographers and writers on Earth included the Otter African Trail Run, Addo Elephant Trail Run, the Fish River Canyon Ultra in Namibia, Giant's Cup Trail Run, Ultra-trail Cape Town, Ultra-Trail Drakensberg, the Dodo and Royal Raid events in Mauritius, the Himalayan 100 Mile Stage Race, and the Salomon Skyrun. TRAIL magazine is 100 pages thick every issue, so you're assured of consistently great reading. We hope you enjoy TRAIL as much as we love to bring it all together. Happy trails!
