ROUTE DESCRIPTION:

The 18km, 12km or 5km of forest single track, sugar cane dirt roads, beach sand and river crossings, is a must do in this warm and friendly coastal village.

18km Route Description: 

18 km Route – Start on the Umhlanga Rocks Promenade, next to the Millennium Stage and run some quiet suburban tar roads and through the new fast developing Izinga Ridge for about 2km before turning onto the picturesque paths through the Forest and Sugar Cane fields. While passing a new viewpoint, that will highlight the beauty of the Umhlanga River Valley, trail runners will have Sibaya Casino on the left, the river below and the Indian Ocean on the horizon, plus the famous Hawaan Forest on the right.

The route includes a few small climbs and a short stretch on the beach sand. There is a knee deep river crossing at 8.4 km, underneath the N2, and of course the famous and exciting lagoon crossing, 2km from the finish, to contend with. A dropping high tide can be expected on the beach section but the uMhlanga life savers will be on duty to assist anyone. There will be a WaterPoint at the 10.5 km mark, however, runners are still advised to carry extra water. The route is marked and race marshals will also be on duty.

Run back on the promenade for 1.7km, past the Lighthouse Café, La Spiaggia and Umhlanga Sands Hotel.

At the Breakers Resort, enter the Hawaan Dune Forest for 1.1km of unspoilt single track with two wooden bridge river crossings. Exit the forest, at the lagoon mouth, onto the beach and join the runners from the 18km and 12km routes.
