The inaugural Bushman’s Trail is being staged at Wagendrift Dam on the 16th and 17th of September 2017.

The event offers a variety of distances over the two days and effectively operates as two single stage events run on consecutive days.

Runners may enter one day only if they so wish. Runners running both days will need to process two entries into the distances of their choice.

At prize giving on Sunday we will crown the Bushman’s Trail Champs as the winners of the two longest distances each day.

A quality technical race garment will be given to all entrants who run any distance on both days!

Accommodation is not included in any of the entries and so this must be booked separately by entrants; there are several options available:

Camping at the Wagendrift Dam by booking through Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife is highly encouraged!  For more information and booking click here.
