The TLC Trail Running Festival

8th Nov 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10th Nov 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Kloofzicht Winter Run - part of the Cool Ideas Trail Running Series

Welcome to a brand-new Multi-Day Trail Running event brought to you by The Leverage Corporation.

This first 3-day Trail Run event called The TLC Trail Running Festival is scheduled to take place at Warthogs Bush Camp from Friday the 8th to Sunday the 10th of November 2019.

CLICK HERE to find out more about this stunning location situated adjacent to Askari Lodge, between the Hartebeespoort Dam and Magaliesburg.

You can choose from a number of offerings:

  • The TLC Trail Running Festival – aka HARDCORE
  • The TLC Trail Running Festival – aka LITE

Runners and walkers are both welcome and will have the choice to participate on a day and a distance of their preference from the selection available.

Participate either in one of the 3-day options, or you choose from a number of other distances.


Friday 8th Nov – 5km or 10km Night Trail Run

Saturday 9th Nov – 25km, 16km or a special 8km Beer Run (not for the faint-hearted!)

Sunday 10th Nov – 16km, 10km & 5km

Accommodation available! Make your choice to stay for the weekend, with options ranging from a standard tent with 2 mattresses, or a VIP tent with 2 stretchers, to a slightly more luxurious tent with 2 beds and semi-private ablution facilities. Top of the range are a Bush Camp Lodge, or even a beautiful room at Askari Lodge, right over the road.

(Early booking is essential as accommodation is limited)

Stay together with friends/family or make your own accommodation arrangements.

Our trails are exclusive – nobody will get the chance to run on these tracks as the land is privately owned.

The TLC Trail Running Festival offers more serious runners an opportunity to do some good distances, whilst there are lighter races for the weekend Trail Running enthusiast.

The Main event, aka HARDCORE, will consist of:

  • Friday the 8th – 10km Night Trail Run 
  • Saturday the 9th – 25km Trail Run
  • Sunday the 10th – 16km Trail Run

The LITE event will consist of:

  • Friday the 8th – 5km Night Trail Run
  • Saturday the 9th – 16km Trail Run
  • Sunday the 10th – 10km Trail Run

Families and friends are also welcome to participate in some of the distances/days and choose to run only on Friday night, or a combination where they run on Friday and Sunday. The choice is theirs.

To make Sunday a more fun day there is a 5km run or walk for younger or not-so-fit athletes who still want to join in the festival.

And there’s more!

International Craft Beer, such as Le Trapp, De Kat, G&T on tap and others will be on offer. There will be massage services, a coffee station, a chill zone and other vendors, making this a special fun-filled weekend.

Bring the whole family – game drives and elephant experiences are also available for non-runners.

Please note: To support wildlife conservation, all supporters and visitors will have to pay a R50 Reserve Fee on entry (kids under 12 will only pay R20). For all runners, this is included in your entry fee.
