The two-day Glencairn Trail Run took place in the southern Drakensberg on the beautiful Glencairn sheep farm and surrounds, near the base of the Sani Pass, on 9 and 10 October. The fun and challenging weekend of camping and running has established itself as one of KZN’s favourite trail running events, offering a ‘Ram Run’ (17km, 19km) and a ‘Lamb Run’ (10km/12km) to cater to different levels of runner.
Underberg local Phillip Shezi took the overall Men’s title for the fourth year in the Ram Run, in a GC time of 02:38:34. He says it was a difficult race but he was happy to be winning for the fourth time.
Anna Notten, a doctor from Mtunzini took the overall Women’s title, in a GC time of 03:02:53. It was her first time at the event and she said she was blown away and loved the weekend at Glencairn.
With the Saturday afternoon spent relaxing on the farm or enjoying yoga, and entertainment provided in the evening, the event attracts young and old, including families. This year’s dress-up theme was Proudly South African, which was embraced by large numbers of the runners.
