Enjoy a fun filled run on a beautiful farm located in the outskirts of Dullstroom at 2,077 meters above sea level, walking distance from the heart of Dullstroom.
This 10 000ha is now the home of the new Squirewood Wild Trial Run, starting with entry level trail running and will soon be one of the prestige trial running events in Mpumalanga. Squirewood Farm Estate has got the most beautiful sceneries in every season of the year.
A lush country estate with wild life, rivers and waterfalls. The trails on the farm are for everyone from the inexperienced novice to the experienced trail runner. Here you can enjoy your run with curious herds of zebras, wildebeest, springbok, impala, as well as jackal and porcupine amongst others.
Come and experience the high-altitude Trial Run and get a taste where champions of Comrades Marathon have been training for the past 30 odd years. Runners like Gift Kelehe, Andrew Kelehe, Gordon Lesetedi, Surprise Makofane, Prodigal Kumalo.
The trial itself consists of mostly double track, here and there are single track, some places are challenging but most of all it is not a very technical run. The 15km trail takes your through beautiful forest areas a slight hill but not a major climb, open cut grass trails and if you are lucky you will see some wild life.
Hydration & Nutrition Stations:
There will be tables with water and food on all the routes approximately every 4 – 5km apart. With this support you will not be required to carry any compulsory kit or equipment but will rather expect you to be responsible and to self-guide.
Thirsty runners should carry at least 1,5lt of their won water – do NOT underestimate these trials, especially if it’s looking to be a warm day! If you have any food preferences and you do not want to use ours, you are more than welcome to bring your own.
If it looks like rain make sure that you are wearing a rain coat, in Dullstroom we can experience 4 seasons in one day doesn’t matter the season. Please remember a hat and sunscreen.
We are limited to only 150 runners - please enter as soon as possible.
PS: Walkers are also welcome to participate in this event.
