There are no frills and fuss at URR, just great trail, camaraderie and in URR tradition, master brewers providing craft beer for those who care to carbo-load post-race!The Umngeni River Run is about embracing the quiet bush and trail running in its purest form. It’s rare that these elements come together so close to a city centre, but the URR offers an opportunity to escape and reconnect on the web of trails alongside the uMngeni River! With 10km, 25km and a 50km ultra distance, there is something for everyone.

This is a highlight on the calendar for us at KZNTR, being one of our longest standing events going into its 6th year, where we can get back to basics. So spend the day with us enjoying pristine trails, a rustic farm setting and fish eagles calling.

Compulsory Equipment: 50km participants must carry 2l hydration and a cell phone. Additional hydration and cell phone highly recommended for all participants.

Water Tables: Approx. every 8km on the longer courses.
