MAKING SOUTH AFRICAN TRAIL RUNNING...
What is The Future of Trail Series?
An inclusive and accessible trail running competition for the student age group runner...
The FTS is aimed at the typical "student age group" trail runner. To be exact runners between 19 and 25 years old.
Even though this series is aimed at students and your typical "student age group" trail runner, we have decided to give it a name that is inclusive and accessible to all runners within this age group.
The Future of Trail Series is aimed at developing trail running as a competitive sport amongst young South Africans. We want to develop the next Davide Magnini and the next Ryan Sandes. We want to grow the sport so that we can see South Africans compete at events like the Golden Trail Series in years to come...
Launching in 2022...
The first event in the Future Trail Series will be held at the Magoebas Forest Marathon in 2022.
The event will be held over the long weekend of 18 to 21 March 2022. The Future Trail Series Launch event will consist of a prologue on the Saturday, 19 March 2022, followed by the main race over 20 kilometers on the 20th of March 2022.
The Future Trail Series
Event #1 - Magoebas
A long weekend of mind blowing trails, extreme fun, competition and meeting new people...
The launch of The Future of Trail Series will be held at the Magoebas Forest Marathon in 2022.
This will be South Africa's first student age group focused trail running event! We want this to be an inclusive event that doesn't discriminate against anyone that does not have access to a tertiary institution...Therefore we have decided to make this event open to anyone that falls within the student age category of 19 to 25 years. We are aiming to develop trail running under students that are actively studying, but also amongst any other trail runners that fall within this student age group.
The first event of the FTS will be held over the long weekend in March 2022. From Friday 18 March 2022 to Sunday 20 March 2022.
Registration will be on the Friday, 18 March and it will be followed by a social the Friday evening. On Saturday, 19 March there will be a prologue. The prologue will be run in a lap format to make the course spectator friendly. This will be at Zwakala Brewery, our registration venue.
Sunday, 20 March will be the main race, where runners will battle it out over a 20 km course in the forests of Magoebaskloof.
If you are a keen trail runner and between the ages of 19 and 25 - don't miss out! Come and be part of something new and historic!
