Route Descriptions:
Nagle Dam is a rural setting that offers spectacular scenery. Runners doing the longer courses will circumnavigate the entire dam as well as explore parts of the river above the dam. The short course cuts through the middle of the dam using an exciting tunnel and runs around the bottom half of the dam. Runners can expect to see some wildlife like Zebra and Impala in the Msinsi Reserve. The run promises a unique perspective of KZN that only those willing to explore on foot will rarely get to see. The longer courses have an adventurous river crossing and steep climbs.

Compulsory Equipment: 38km and 20km participants  must carry 2L of hydration and a cell phone. A base (warm) layer and water proof jacket are highly recommended.

Water Tables: Approximately every 10km. 38km has 3, 21km has 2 and the 10km has 1.

Directions (do NOT use a gps navigator / Google Maps – these are not accurate through the valley!)

From PMB (35 mins) (Hilton side): Travelling South take the Church Street off-ramp in Pietermaritzburg and turn left. Go straight through the first two sets of robots and turn right at the third set towards Greytown. Then at the next set of robots, before crossing the Baynespruit stream, turn right into Ohrtmann Rd. Go straight until the 1st set of robots and turn left into Manning Avenue. Cross the Baynespruit stream and go straight through the first set of robot and then turn left at the 2nd set at the Shell Garage. Travel up the hill for +- 2km and turn right onto the Table Mountain Rd. The turn is sign posted: Table Mountain. Travel straight on this road for about 20km. Continue on straight past the turn-offs to the D1001 and D1026 and then down a steep hill into the Umngeni Valley. Cross the cattle grid and the first Msinsi Entrance and continue for another 2kms and the main entrance to Nagle Dam will come up on your left.

From PMB (35mins) (Durban side): Travelling North on the N3, take the Ohrtmann Road off-ramp in Pietermaritzburg and turn right. Go over the highway and straight through the next set of robots, then turn right into Manning Avenue at the 2nd set of robots.
