Drakensberg Northern Trail [POSTPONED]

21st Mar 2020 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Drakensberg Northern Trail is a trail running event that takes place in the northern section of the spectacular Drakensberg Mountain Range in South Africa. The main event is a 40km Mountain Challenge. There are 3 shorter distances of 20km, 10km and 6km making a great weekend of running for all levels of runners and walkers.

The race is at high altitude and pushes runners to find new limits within themselves whilst exploring the majestic mountain range. Drakensberg Northern Trail has been going since 2015 and continues today as one of KZNTR’s premier events.

Drakensberg Northern Trail 2020 Postponed

Dear Trail Runners, Hikers and  Walkers,

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Drakensberg Northern Trail 2020 will be postponed. The decision to delay the race was taken from us during President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address last night in which he declared a national state of disaster due to the Covid-19 pandemic. One of the many measures imposed to curb the infection rate of the coronavirus is a ban on all gatherings of 100 people or more.

Although this is a massive blow for all of us, we believe that our Government has made the right decision in trying to address this global crisis. We support the measures Government has elected to impose to slow the spread of the Covid-19.

At this stage, we don’t have a proposed date for the 2020 edition of Drakensberg Northern Trail and ask for your patience and understanding. We will be monitoring the situation closely and endeavour to keep you updated as soon as Government lifts the restrictions due to the national state of disaster.
