Every season brings with it a new reason to get out and maximise time on the trails. A Gauteng summer is the perfect excuse to put your hand up for either the Short Course Challenge or Long Course Championship at the popular Spur Gauteng Summer Trail Series®. The Wildrunner crew is taking you back to the “Hennops Beast” on 22 October, to game spotting paradise at Segwati Game Ranch on 29 October, to the beautiful B’sorah Tented Camp in the heart of majestic Magaliesberg on 5 November, and to a truly memorable finale full of surprises at Leeuwenkloof on 26 November. A few of the well-received route changes applied to the winter Series® will be included, which has enabled an increase in single track and some great trail variety.

As part of the celebration of the 10th Spur Trail Series® the PeeWee (10 years or younger) division can enter at no cost, provided they are pre-registered. The Series® is highly competitive at the sharp end, but is also perfectly positioned as an introduction to off-road running. As a family-friendly event, there is finish line entertainment for the youngsters, as well as coffee and food trucks for pre or post-race enjoyment. Category and lucky draw prizes will round off a great day out.

Each Spur Trail Series® consists of four long and four short races. To complete the full Series you must run at least three short courses or three long courses. You can also just enjoy one or two races, but all those that complete the series will receive a medal. Online entries are open, and the Summer Series® is likely to fill up fast.
