With just two weeks to go until the Glencairn Trail Run, it’s time we release what this year’s dress them is going to be. We also finalizing tent allocations by the end of this week, plus we have some very exciting news for those who are keen to spoil themselves a little by upgrading to our glamping option. Lastly, there are a few admin points to have a read through including substitutions, physio, and airport shuttles.

Dress Theme

Time to get a little creative and celebrate the amazing country we are spoilt to live in! Our dress up theme this year will be Proudly South African. This shouldn’t be too hard, most of you should have something South African in your wardrobe from the 2010 World Cup? Our judges will be scoring you both on the route and in the race village. Best dressed will win a 2019 entry!

Tents allocations

We will only be making the final tent allocations the week before the event. Lots can happen between now and then so please shout if you want to make changes to your neighbour between now and then. Please email support@entryninja.com with your request. We will try our best to allocate your tent requests as best we can.

If you would like to rather share a tent with someone please let us know by emailing admin@glencairntrailrun.co.za and we will sort it out.
