The first event of the Talbot Trail Run Series went off without a hitch on the morning of Saturday 15 June 2013.

Runners travel from afar for the Talbot Series which has gained a reputation in KZN as the must do series. Maweni Trail Centre set within a nature reserve just outside Pietermaritzburg was the venue where runners and walkers were treated to valley vistas and golden sunshine on a crisp winters morning as they tackled the shorter 6km route or the longer 14km route. Long sections of single track interspersed with faster open running on farm roads made for a good mix of scenery and terrain.

Almost every runner arrived at the finish line tired, but invigorated by the natural experience of trail running- many first time trail runners were simply beaming.

The good news is that on Saturday 29 June the Talbot Series moves to Table Mountain where runners are afforded the unique opportunity of running around Table Mountain. In another first at the event there will be a photo competition where runners will submit their trail photos after the event to the KZN Trail Running facebook page to stand a chance of winning a pair of Brooks trail running shoes.
