Trail shoes – check; Water packs – check; Emergency kit – check
Two Stella ladies, Samantha de la Porte and Maureen Lyons ready to tackle the 20km Trail hosted by KZN Trail Running.
With two days of continual rain prior to the race we knew all the elements would come our way.
Fully kitted out and apprehensive we approached the starting line. It was windy, cold and misty to begin with but no sooner had we started the sun made an appearance and we were presented with glorious running conditions.
With a 1900m elevation, numerous icy river crossings and wet/muddy conditions it called for cautious running but added to this adventure.
The scenery was insane and the rock formations humongous.
A few sightings of vultures and the calls of wild cats were some of our spoils.
We were welcomed back to the finish line by the well organised kzn trail team and awarded a well deserved medal with a difference.
Put this event on your “to do”list.
Roll on #DNT2019……..
