The Spur Gauteng Winter Trail Series® is Officially on!

Race 1 of the Gauteng Winter Spur Trail Series® Less than an hour outside of Johannesburg, the B’sorah Luxury Tented Camp is hidden in the bushveld of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains. As the venue for the first of the Gauteng Winter Spur Trail Series® events, B’sorah welcomed runners with icy temperatures, but the sun, views and great vibe had warmed everyone up by 9am, when the racing kicked off. It was a fast day out, and with this being a new course, all times have been recorded as the times to beat during the summer series. Challenge set! The Long Course started at 9am with Batch A. Batches left in 2min intervals, and there were 4 batches in total. This course boasted about 1.5km of jeep track before taking runners in to 3km of single track between the canal and the river. There was a sneaky climb out of the river, before runners...

An exciting finish

This past Sunday the grand finale of Spur Cape Summer Trail Series® 2017 (CSTS) took place on the beautiful mountain bike trails of Oak-Valley wine estate. The Elgin Valley dished out some of its best weather it had to offer, making for a perfect morning of running. Oak-Valley’s epic mountain bike trails are normally closed off to runners, but once a year we get exclusive access for the Spur Trail Series® runners to head out and enjoy these fast, flowy and fun trails. With this being more of a mountain bike trail as well and slightly less technical mountain running, it meant we were also in for an extremely fast morning of running. Especially after having a look at the start line up for the XL. Race 4 see’s the addition of the Elgin Valley Summer XL. And on Sunday we had some big names line up, the likes of  Nicholas Rupanga,...

Lighting up the switchbacks

Another spectacular evening of running for the Spur Cape Summer Trail Series® 2017 as runners chased down the sunset through the howling winds, otherwise considered a gentle breeze by all local Cape Tonians, on Wednesday night at Meerendal Wine Estate. It was a first for the Spur Trail Series® at this new venue and proved to be hit for all who crossed the finish line. The view from the start/finish was a sight to remember as the runners wound their way up the beautifully cut switchback mountain bike trails, with Table Mountain and Lions Head lit up in the backdrop. Racing kicked off at 19:30 for the long course, with all the racing snakes and serious faces lined up, up front. Current series leader and the hot favourite for podium step number one, was missing from the starting line, meaning there was a first place up for grabs. Michael Davidson saw the gap...

Cups be gone!

Following the global trail running initiative started in 2011 in the USA, and continuing the trend of trail running organizers undeniable responsibility to tune into as many ways of being environmentally friendly as possible, all Wildrunner Events from the 1st February 2017 will be “cup-less” events.  “Basically any aid station providing hydration to participants will no longer be providing disposable cups, hence this will require each participant to provide his/her own cup,” says Owen Middleton, Wildrunner founder and MD.  “This will not only reduce our waste footprint in a huge way, but will enhance an environmental consciousness that together we can make a difference”. In parallel to taking this cup-less stance, Wildrunner has taken the initiative to import one of the leading, BPA free, collapsible cup designs.  This durable cup weighs only 15g, and unlike it’s competition can take both hot and cold liquid.  These will be available for only R60 at...

Single track back in action!

This past Sunday saw the trail running calendar kick off with the first race of the Spur Cape Summer Trail Series® at Lebanon Forest in Elgin. After taking a beating from the wild fires last year, it was awesome to have all the fun single tracks back in action. The Cape decided to play along as well and dish out some delicious weather for runners to play in out on the trails. First light came peeking out at 5:30am as runners started rolling in for registration and number collection. By 6:30am there was an exciting buzz in the air from all the runners getting ready to dust off those holiday legs and kick up some dirt. To add to the buzz was Wildrunner’s own bag of exciting news for 2017. First was the fact that Spur Trail Series® and Wildrunner turns 10 years young this year.
