Hilton College has become a sought after place amongst trail runners, especially when they get the opportunity to run through the Nature Reserve along the beautifully maintained paths leading down to the Umngeni River. This is what happened this past Sunday (9 Feb) with almost 300 runners grabbing the chance. There was something for all runners from a 6km through the plantations and along the cliff tops to a brutual 23km with plenty of climbing. Comments from the top runners taking on the long, challenging course where all about the balance and beauty. A balance of fast single track, technical decents, open jeep track and lung busting climbs. The most popular course was the 13km intermediate which asked a lot of the runners in the second half on their way up from the river to the Hilton College grounds where the race starts and finishes. A new timing system was used and a full set of results can be viewed here: CLICK HERE

A total of 3 events will be hosted at Hilton College this year, the next one takes place on Sunday 25 May where new courses of similar distances will be laid out. 50% of the proceeds from the events go towards maintaining the Nature Reserve. See you there.
