KZN Trail Running’s (KZNTR) final event for the year is the festive-themed evening family fun run in the stunning WESSA uMngeni Valley Nature Reserve. The family-run Howick-based trail running events company look forward to welcoming runners, walkers and lovers of the great South African outdoors to WESSA on Saturday, December 7 to come and celebrate the approaching holidays with them.There will be two distances to choose from — 5 km and 12 km — and the routes explore the scenic, beautifully maintained trails of the uMngeni Valley Nature Reserve, Howick’s very accessible green gem. Both distances are open to runners and walkers alike and set off at dusk, affording participants the treat of a gorgeous Midlands bush sunset. Don’t forget your headlight or torch as it may well be dark by the time you get back. Everyone is encouraged to get into the festive vibe by dressing up in their best Christmas outfit.KZNTR have not forgotten the most special members of the family. A special highlight for the youngest of the clan is the 1 km Santa Dash, complete with milk and cookies waiting at the finish line. Parents can enjoy the fun with their little ones before they head out into the reserve for their own adventure. The KZNTR KidZone will be in action for children two years and older so that parents can get out onto the trail with peace of mind, knowing that their little ones will be looked after and entertained by our experienced childminders.Back in the race village, participants, their friends and their family will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy some delicious meals, refreshing drinks and top-quality coffee, all while they enjoy the festive atmosphere and have a good giggle at some entertaining dress-up outfits.As always, at KZNTR events there will be some super lucky draw prizes up for grabs and a special prize will be awarded for the best “Christmas” outfit.Chalets, dormitories and self-camping options are available at WESSA uMngeni Valley.
