Kruger 2 Canyon 2019
Two day stage trail running race near Kampersrus, Hoedspruit, Limpopo
In 2015 and 2016 Kruger2Canyon was hosted under the Wild Series banner. In 2017 it was hosted by KZN Trail Running and Kruger2Canyons Biosphere successfully and has quickly earned itself iconic status on the South African Trail Running Scene. In 2019 we will be presenting the 5th edition of K2C!
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 laid out, has all of the Big 5 other than buffalo within its bounds. In 2016 a number of runners got to view African Wild Dog while on route, while in 2017 a herd of elephants watched on as the runners made they way along the course.
