In its first year in 2014, it looks set to become one of South Africa’s top two-day, two-stage trail running events.
The format for the weekend is presented as two races – an Intermediate – 10km-15km per day and an Extreme – 20km-30km per day.
The Best of Both Worlds
In addition, recognising the amount of time those of us who love chasing our outdoor passions spend alone away from our families and loved-ones in beautiful but remote and inaccessible locations, the Northern Drakensberg offers participants an unrivalled opportunity to include their greatest supporters. Nestling in the shadow of the Amphitheatre is a range of world-class accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, where runners can relax in comfort recuperating between stages, and friends, families and children can take advantage of the wide range of activities especially on offer and be exposed to the true wonder that is our Drakensberg.
All Out Adventures, centrally located to all the Northern Berg Resorts is the awesome venue from where the runs take place. Secure parking, a great coffee shop, clean restrooms and plenty of activities for the spectators will ensure that everyone is happy. Spectators of all ages are catered for with the numerous activities on offer – from the Bungee Bounce and Kid’s Zone for the littlies to the King Swing and Cable Tour for the intrepid. Giant cappuccinos and homemade scones will keep the wolf from the door while spectators wait for the runners to return.
