The iNsingizi/Satin Candy Trail Runs took place on Sunday the 7th July and we couldn’t have asked for a better day.

About 90 runners took part and all agreed that once again the iNsingizi team had outdone themselves with awesome tracks and trails ensuring everyone found something they liked – although the up-hills didn’t have too many fans.

The 18km events were won by Wendy Mills and Mdu Zonda, both finishing well ahead of the second placed runners. It seemed that the 18km race was “tough but awesome” with most runners commenting on how much fun the more technical part of the race was.

The 9km race saw runners start off in the same direction as the 18km race but did not head as far up the hill – Abby Adie and Patrick Wayne were the winners of the event with Abby coming in 3rd overall.

The 5km (which unusually for the iNsingizi trails) was the smallest race and was enjoyed by the walkers as well as the runners – Juliet Goebel was not only the youngest competitor but also the winner of the 5km race – she ran a superb race. The mens winner was Chris Easthorpe who came in shortly after Juliette.

A big thank you to all who made this race such a fantastic event – Satin Candy, Oasis Water (Victoria Rd Pietermaritzburg) Vivobarefoot and Wedgewood Race food for their awesome sponsorships. Tasha’s fantastic Fudge, Hilltops Health and Beauty, The Beauty Zone, The Gwahumbe Nursery, Assured Bookkeeping, and Andy C for the great lucky draw prizes.

I really enjoyed the event -as a newbie to running and trail running in general I opted to do the 5km.Due to the small field and the blitz lighting little lady right in the front getting lost it so happened that I was the first lady in and Chris Easthorpe ,was by rights, the first runner in. Really don't meant to sound petty but a little recognition would have been appreciated. Its not always about how fast you can run but that you follow the right path :) Look forward to upgrading to the 9km @ the next event
