The Drakensberg! Africa’s premier mountain range, UNESCO World Heritage Site, Geographical Wonder, international tourist attraction and South Africa’s prime outdoor adventure camping and hiking destination rolled into one. Stretching uninterrupted from the Western Cape to the Limpopo, these magical mountains have drawn brave minds, restless souls and hardy bodies in search of exercise, beauty and adventure for generations. Now it is time to raise the stakes, take off the gloves, shake off the fear and put on those trail shoes, as we bring one of the world’s newest and fastest growing adventure sports to one of the world’s most ancient and extreme environments with Runtheberg’s brand new Drakensberg Adventure Trails!

The Northern Berg, the heart of the country between the Highveld and the Indian Ocean, easily accessible to city-dwelling Gautengers starved for fresh air and outdoor adventure, beach-loving KZN-ers looking for some real elevation, and Free State farmers wanting to show off their toughness, is the perfect destination for staging what is fast becoming South Africa’s top 2-day, 2-stage trail running weekend. The format for the weekend will include 2 races – the intermediate Challenge Race at +-15km per day, and the tougher Extreme Race at +-25km per day.

The Best of Both Worlds

In addition, recognising the amount of time those of us who love chasing our outdoor passions spend alone away from our families and loved-ones in beautiful but remote and inaccessible locations, the Northern Berg offers participants an unrivalled opportunity to include their greatest supporters. Nestling in the shadow of the Amphitheatre is a range of world-class accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, where runners can relax in comfort recuperating between stages, and friends, families and children can take advantage of the wide range of activities especially on offer and be exposed to the true wonder that is our Drakensberg.

  2. Hello,

    It appears I am on your waitlist, when will I know of your confirmation as I want to make hotel bookings.
    I initially registered for the 30km and I would like to change it to the 15km.

  3. Hi Enver,
    Just to clarify a couple of things – you are NOT yet on the Waitlist. You entered some time ago but did not pay and confirm the entry. If you would like to actually be on the Waitlist please email us at as soon as possible and let us know. At this stage there is still a fair chance of securing an entry but we obviously can’t make any promises. We will also make every effort to let everybody know as quickly as we can so arrangements can be made etc. And then just to confirm, the “30km” and the “15km” are the same event (15km x 2 days) 🙂 Hope this helps.
