Ingeli Sky Marathon & Trail Run

  • 5 Apr 2016

The Ingeli Sky Marathon is a challenging mix of forest single track, climbing mountain paths, dirt jeep track and cut grass paths and takes place in the breathtaking surrounds of the Ingeli Forests on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast.

Set  to  take  place  on  the  30th April  2016, each  year  this  race  is  attracting  an  increased number  of  participants  from  around  the  country  and  visitors  are  diarizing  it  as  an  annual must-do calendar date, making a full weekend of it.  The route is designed to pass through the most scenic parts of the area including waterfalls, streams  and  amazing  views!  Runners  are  taken  to  one  of  the  highest  parts  of  the  Ingeli

Mountain – a rather challenging ascent of nearly 2000 metres for the Sky Marathon runners. The 21km Mountain Challenge follows the same route as the main event for 12kms before splitting off and returning to the finish at the lodge. The 21km is the mini  version of the full challenge, but should not be underestimated. It is still a tough, challenging and scenic route itself!

As always, there are loads of prizes and goody bags for everyone and Sky Marathon entrants will  receive  a  t-shirt  as  well  and  there  will  be  a  controlled  kids  zone  at  the  venue with  full  supervision for  adults  needing  some  help  with  their  little  ones  whilst  they  are running.

For the slightly less fit, or more relaxed participants, the 10km and 5km forest trail events do not  venture  onto  Ingeli Mountain,  but  still  involve  a few  steep  climbs  and  descents through the forested area. They have been designed for those looking for something shorter with the 5km well suited to beginner trail runners and children. Walkers are welcome for both of the Forest Trail routes.
