Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had no other option as to move the Prestige Trail Run #3 to Rosemary Hill Trails as Voortrekker Monument made a double booking which limit the trails & parking at the venue.
Prestige Trail Run #3 will be relocated to Rosemary Hill. Please notify your family, friends, fellow runners & running clubs. The necessary communication will be sent out to everyone on all platforms.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Join us for the Winter Prestige Trail Run Series 2019, the top of the crop hand-built trails around Pretoria’s outskirts.

They will also be sponsoring running merchandise & vouchers at each event. Pop in at their shop and see what they offer!


Legends Craft Beer & Cider on Tap

Participating in a prestige event means prestige craft beer AND cider will be on sale at each event. For this series Legends Brewery will be the supplier of choice. They will serve Lager, Cookies & Cream Ale & Gin Ice Tea on tap. #LegendsDrinkLegends


Official Vitality Racing Event (VRE)

Taking part in race events is a great way to stay motivated to exercise regularly – from a 5km fun run to an endurance event such as a cycle race or marathon. To celebrate all levels of event participation of our Vitality members, we have expanded our race event calendar to include any timed and verified race event in the disciplines of cycling, walking/running, swimming and major multisport events. This means you are able to compete both locally and in international events – and be rewarded for it.


Back To Basics Nutrition

The Back to Basics range includes two supplementary drinks, both are Low GI, enriched with fibre, vitamins and mineral fortified. They come in single-serve sachets, in a variety of flavours.

Back to Basics – Nutrition nutritional supplements are the result of 20 years research and offer the advantage of sustained energy release over a period of 4 to 5 hours vs traditional supplements that are sugar based [High GI] and provide energy for approximately one hour, followed by a feeling of exhaustion and hunger.
