KZNTR has hosted 6 successful editions of the Drakensberg Northern Trail from the Windmill Farm at the top of Oliviershoek. During this time, the race has grown significantly, and we have been challenged by the weather at times, up on the ridgeline at the venue.
A date clash forced us to consider our options and when opportunities present themselves to us, we tend to run with them!
Date: 6 March 2021
Venue: aha Alpine Heath, supported by Greenfire Drakensberg
