Route Description

The Glencairn Trail Run has two events catering for different abilities. “The Ram Run” is the longer distance event (Day 1: 21km, Day 2: 18km) and “The Lamb Run” (Day 1: 12km, Day 2: 8km) is the shorter distance event. Both distances provide a unique mix of terrain with a couple of technical sections that everyone will enjoy. We have spent a lot of time on the route to ensure that it will captivate all runners to provide them with a special running experience.

Day 1 takes runners towards the Sani Pass Valley through a range of beautiful terrain, ranging from open veld, dairy pastures, pine forests and of course up alongside the Drakensberg.  You will meet the Pholela River a number of times as you wind your way up towards the Drakensberg.

Day 2 is slightly shorter in distance but has a few kicks that will require some extra energy, particularly The Ram Run . Again you will traverse through a range of different terrain. The Southern Drakensberg is always in the background providing some great views
