Welcome to the home of Kruger2Canyon Challenge

Kruger2Canyon 2017 –  a two day stage trail running race in Kampersrus, Hoedspruit, Limpopo

17 and 18 June 2017


In 2015 and 2016 Kruger2Canyon was hosted uder the Wild Series banner. In 2017 it will be hosted by KZN Trail Running and Kruger2Canyons Biosphere and we will be introducing some changes to the event that has quickly earned itself iconic status on the South African Trail Running Scene. The  two main changes are the introduction of a marathon distance course over the 2 stages making it more accessible to runners looking for shorter distances, and the option to enter only a single day of the challenge.

The route offers an incredible opportunity to explore the most northern reaches of the Drakensberg, in and around the Blyde River Canyon, as well as the bushveld adjacent to the Kruger National Park. The Blue Canyon Conservancy in which the second stage is layed out, has all but buffalo within its bounds. In 2016 a number of runners got to view African Wild Dog while on route.

For an exceptional South African trail running experience, make sure you enter Kruger2Canyon 2017.
