About Us

We are a group of passionate Trail and Ultra Runners, with over 20 years combined experience of hosting running events. The Drakensberg Trail Festival has been founded to give people the opportunity to run an Ultra Distance on a different type of landscape to the usual, showcasing all that the beautiful sub-tropical region of South Africa has to offer.


The Drakensberg Trail Festival is a celebration of all things Trail and Ultra Running set in the most majestic, untouched mountain range in South Africa.

It doesn’t matter who you are, how many times you have visited ‘the Berg’ you can never get tired of the majestic mountain trails that the Drakensberg World Heritage Site is renowned for. The running trails incorporate and interweave some of the most famous peaks in the park, from Sungubala to Babangibona, Vultures Colony, Mount Lebanon and Baboon Rock.
