TRAIL runners, walkers, outdoor enthusiasts, families and friends are invited to the Trewirgie Challenge Trail at Trewirgie Farm in the beautiful countryside lying between Baynesfield and Richmond on Sunday 17 July in aid of SA Riding for the Disable Organisation (Sarda).

The Trewirgie Challenge Trail goes back to 2013 when Barbara Seele (Trewirgie Farm family member) organised it as part of her fundraising commitments as a participant in the Mongol Derby. Seele selected Sarda Durban as her charity beneficiary in South Africa and successfully completed the Mongol Derby and has continued to support Sarda Durban every year since through the Trewirgie Challenge Trail.

Trail participants are invited to run, walk or stroll as appropriate. There are two routes, the longer and more challenging is approx 17-18km long and goes up, up and up, then down, down and down amidst forests, rivers, mountains and stunning views. The shorter 5km route is walker and family friendly but still an achievement when you cross end line. Registration opens at 7.30am, start time for both distances is 8.30am. There is no registration fee as such but donations welcome (cash at registration) for the benefit of Sarda Durban.

Linda Wilson volunteer of Sarda said that everyone is encouraged to arrive early and enjoy coffee and home-made rusks.

“There will be water tables en route and a few streams along the way but its suggested you bring along your hydration pack if you feel you’ll need it.

“Ablutions will be provided in the beautiful forest setting. There will be a short prize giving and a lucky draw followed by a bring and braai – bring your own meat, drinks and chairs - the fires and beautiful venue will be provided,” she said.

Wilson added that by joining in this wonderful, friendly event on beautiful Trewirgie Farm you will be helping to ensure ‘therapy in motion’ continues to be available to schools for children with special needs throughout Durban. No charge is made to schools or families.
