Important

If you buy a subscription through the App Store for your Apple devices or the Google Play store for Android, please note that subs are forward-based. This means that if you sign up after a new edition is released, your first issue will be the next edition, not the current one. It’s not what we’d like, but that is how their systems work. Please buy the current issue separately if you want that too.

Also, if you buy your TRAIL subscription here on our site, you’ll login and read the mag through this web app. You will NOT be able to access your subscription through other platforms like Amazon, App Store, Google Play, Magzter, or Zinio.
There’s no connection between purchases on our website and those stores.

Not so sure about buying at all yet?

Digital is now easier to read

Larger fonts, more pages, better navigation… it really is easier to read than before. We are confident you’ll enjoy it!

Lots of trail inspiration, low price

Subscribe to the new digital TRAIL for R20 a month (R219.99 a year) on the various app platforms we’re on.

You can also buy a single issue for R59.99 (that’s R20 a month for its three month term).

Family sharing

It is not possible to share in-app purchases with other users. Both the Apple and Android app stores prevent this.

You can however view the app on multiple devices that are signed in with the same user account. So for example, if you have a phone as well as a tablet, you’ll be able to view the app on both the tablet and smartphone, provided you’re signed into both devices with the same user details.

NB: Please read our note below about the App Store and Google Play activating the next issue as the first issue for subscriptions.

Digital subscriber FAQ

I’m having issues downloading my digital subscription. What do I do?

As much as we would like to help you with this, we do not administer the delivery or data management of App Store, Google Play, or Zinio subscriptions or single issues. Please email their support desks directly. You will have received a communication email from them at the time of signing up. Thank you, and we hope you enjoy reading TRAIL digitally.

Please send any feedback you have on the reading experience, as well as suggestions on how we could improve our offering to you.

I’m on Android. Where can I get TRAIL?

You can search your app store for TRAIL magazine and download one of the two apps which appear: Digital Publications or Zinio. Look out for our logo, as there are other trail running magazines out there!

If you already use Zinio or Magzter to read digital magazines, open your app and search for TRAIL magazine. Familiarise yourself with our current magazine cover to ensure you don’t accidentally buy an international trail running magazine.

If you can’t see our magazine cover in your search, go into your settings and check that you have selected South Africa as your country.
