I must be missing something - it does seem, however that the most events are happening in the Cape.  Maybe it's just a perception, but looking at the Events Section it's all happening in the WCape.

 

So far I know only of the Hedianga Best, TAF trail run and Rosemary Hill trail run in Gauteng. There is also the newly formed Advendurance events, which is something to look forward to.

There are trail adventure runs weekly, 

 

Kinetic night trails once a month

 

Salomon trail timetrial at wolwespruit

 

............ runs every few months but we don't talk of them

 

my road less traveled events start in March.

Spur trail series

 

The events listing on trail hub only really shows the cape events there are major trail events not listed:

3 Cranes, Karkloof 100, Drakensberg Northern Trail, Mweni Marathon, Rhodes Run, wartrail(you can do just the run for a fraction of the cost of skyrun lite) skyrun etc etc etc

There is almost a race every week for the next few months in Gauteng

Hi Raab. Where can I enter for these events? Thanks.

 

The easiest way to find these events is unfortunately to build some activity on Facebook. I mostly use FB for building a calendar of events.

 

You can try the following websites to enter, these all have events over the coming few weeks:

Trailadventure has an event every week somewhere in Gauteng, sometimes two! Great vibe, great trails.
