The Glencairn Trail Run has two events catering for different abilities. “The Ram Run” is the longer distance event (Day 1: 21km, Day 2: 16km) and “The Lamb Run” (Day 1: 12km, Day 2: 8km) is the shorter distance event. Both distances provide a unique mix of terrain with a couple of technical sections that everyone will enjoy. We have spent a lot of time on the route to ensure that it will captivate all runners to provide them with a special running experience.
Day 1 takes runners towards the Sani Pass Valley through a range of beautiful terrain, ranging from open veld, dairy pastures, pine forests and of course up alongside the Drakensberg. You will meet the Pholela River a number of times as you wind your way up towards the Drakensberg.
Day 2 offers some respite for the legs with less climbing and a slightly shorter route than Day 1. Again you will traverse through a range of different terrain. The Southern Drakensberg is always in the background providing some great views
