Karkloof 100 Update

Hey Ultra Runners


Wow, what a time we are all going through right now. With so much uncertainty in our world, we thought it best to be communicating with you on a constant basis around the Karkloof 100 miler and ultra-running in general.


As you would have seen on a lot of the KZNTR posts, there have been many changes and certainly the running and trail running landscape will not be the same when we have this pandemic under control.


That being said, The Karkloof 100 miler, as one of our crown jewels, and as South Africa’s premier 100 mile trail race,  have no plans whatsoever of postponing or cancelling the race at this stage.


However, that could certainly change in the weeks and months to come, but we will keep you in the loop at all times as to what our thinking is.


I do think that the race will have a substantial jump in entries for this year, with a lot of runners missing out on the traditional ultra’s and marathons.

This is very exciting for us and we will certainly put on a great show in 2020.

The 50 miler could certainly prove to be a great replacement for some roadies out there!!


To our community, stay healthy, stay safe, wash your hands and Stay at Home!!

There is plenty of time to train for the KK100. 

Do check out the Garden Trail series on Facebook in the meantime!


We cannot wait to be back out on the trails with you all.

“The Show must go on!” 

“Empty spaces, what are we living for?
Abandoned places, I guess we know the score, on and on
Does anybody know what we are looking for?
Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line
Does anybody want to take it anymore?

The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile, still, stays on”

Stay tuned for more info and updates as the days and weeks pass!

Andrew, Jack and the team.
