Kamberg Trail Run

Fri Aug 13, 14:00 - Sun Aug 15, 14:00
Kamberg Mountain Shadows


Kamberg Trail Run is an authentic mountain experience. The Kamberg Valley is known to be a place where life moves slower, and adventure abounds. The "Valley", as the locals call it, is a gem of untouched beauty waiting to be discovered and explored. 

Kamberg Trail Run is a unique trail running/walking event that offers a trail seeker something of everything: wilderness experience as you traverse the Maloti-Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site, breath-taking vistas of the Central Drakensberg Escarpment, steep climbs, waterfalls and caves, and even some road running! 

Kamberg Trail Run presents four trail races of 50km (one day), 50km (two-day: 26km + 24km), 26km, and 7km. The longer courses traverse the mountain peaks of the Kamberg Valley: Lebanon, Mount Erskine, Kwa-Thwalelinye, and Cleopatra. The 50km route has 2475m elevation gain/loss, the 26km route has 1050m elevation gain/loss, and the 7km route has 120m elevation gain/loss.

The race will be hosted at Kamberg Mountain Shadows, which is roughly a 2:15-hour drive from Durban and a 5-hour drive from Johannesburg.

Accommodation and meals at Kamberg Mountain Shadows are included in the “Full Package” entries which includes Friday: Dinner, Saturday: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, Sunday: Breakfast, as well as snacks throughout the weekend. Meal tickets for the weekend can also be purchased separately.

Although safety protocols will be in place, participants must take care and respect the Maloti-Drakensberg mountains. 

Further event information will be provided via direct e-mail correspondence with participants.
