Get ready for an unforgettable adventure at Shongweni Dam, nestled in the breathtaking Valley of 1000 Hills! With its striking red cliff faces, sparkling dam, and lush bushveld, this rural gem is just waiting to be explored on foot – the ultimate way to experience its beauty.

Our longer courses will take you on a thrilling journey around the entire dam, with rugged riverine sections and challenging climbs that will test your limits. For a shorter but equally exhilarating experience, the course cuts through an exciting tunnel and runs around the bottom half of the dam. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like zebra and impala in the Shongweni Reserve!

But that’s not all – this event is a beloved favorite among the trail community for good reason. Our race village is buzzing with energy, featuring delicious food and drinks, massage therapists, trail gear, and more. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss, offering a unique perspective of KZN that only those willing to explore on foot can truly appreciate.
