Ingeli Trail Race Report

There is an exciting unknown element to inaugural events and this feeling was thick in the air on Saturday 2 November at Ingeli Forest Lodge where runners gathered to take on the Ingeli Trail. The air was cool and the wind strong as the small field of 15 runners taking on 48km of Mountain and Forest Trail headed off. The wind was not truly felt until runners reached the steep climb up the ridge of the Ingeli Range. With some struggling to keep their feet runners picked their way across the top of the range for about 5kms before descending down a steep track to Umsilo hut where there main aid station came to many as a great relief. Both the 23km and 48km course had to tackle this mountain section, the long course then headed further into the beautiful Ingeli area while the 23km headed back.

Two shorter forest trails of 5km and 12km started a few hours after the mountain challenge events and were well subscribed. The courses were still not easy, but gave opportunity to people of all ages and fitness levels to partake.

The day was fun filled with lots of good food waiting for everyone coming off the trail. The final finishers from the long course finished at 4pm in just under 9 hours. By the some had already begun to celebrate a day of awesome trail running which then continued well into the evening. A highlight was a slide show of photographs taken on course by Emma Gatland.
