About the venue:

Thaba trails are without doubt one of the most enjoyable and diverse trails in Gauteng.

In the company of some fantastic antelope, it caters for all fitness and skill levels. Wildlife roams freely in the reserve, therefore we guarantee you will share the route with zebra, black wildebeest, springbok, and impala. Rolling hills, bushveld vegetation, and adrenaline-pumping downhills make this a world-class venue with Africa’s biggest city, just eight kilometers away.

On the very technical parts of the trail, we have included A and B Lines for safety reasons.

Please note the B-lines can take 6-10 seconds longer as they are longer.

 

Routes:

3 Routes to choose from:

 

5Km

 

As our shortest and easiest race, this is a perfect outing for both beginner and experienced runners looking for a beautiful day out without breaking a sweat. None of the climbs are excessively long, steep or technical, making it a rewarding loop for any walker to enjoy. 

 

10Km

 

Welcome to an African savannah experience!

This route is almost exclusively single track and without a doubt not your average 10km run.

It will test you but will not break you. Running this route is a truly rewarding experience. It is a chance to break away from your daily routine while enjoying the outing with your friends.

 

21km

 

A route any hardcore trail runner can dream about. This is ‘next level’ on the rating scale, with some fabulous technical single-track, jaw-clenching descents and rock gardens. It is challenging but satisfying! The views from the top are spectacular, guaranteed to earn you facebook and Instagram bragging rights, that is of course if you make it up the hill!
