Kruger 2 Canyon 2022 (01-02 July 2023)

Two day stage trail running race near Kampersrus, Hoedspruit, Limpopo

2023 will be the 8th running of this amazing event!

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 their way along the course.
