Enjoy a trail running experience like no other at the Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run

Trail running enthusiasts will get to experience trail running at its best at the 10th annual Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run that will return to the ATKV Buffelspoort (North-West Province) on Sunday 04 June 2023.

Catering for the entire family, there are four fantastic events to choose from: a Long Route (+-24km), Short Route (+-12km), Fun Run (+-8km) and a Kids Event (2.5km).

“Set in the beautiful Buffelspoort Valley, few trail running events in and around Gauteng offer the spectacular variety of trails that you’ll get to experience when taking on the Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run Long Route (+-24km), says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “Boasting a 526m ascent, this route will include gravel roads, jeep track, bushveld single track and soft sand at some sections. There will also be one or two gully sections to navigate. The Long Route is ideal for top trail runners who would like to race each other on a moderate distance trail. The route is also ideal for fit and well-conditioned road runners that would like to give trail running a go.”

“The Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run Short Route (+-12km) features a 218m ascent and is designed for the adventurous runner who loves to be outdoors, running in a beautiful natural environment,” continues Meyer. “The route includes technical, but safe sections, just don’t rush things when going down the gully. If you are able to run 10km comfortably on the road, you will enjoy this route that is also ideal for runners that are new to the sport of trail running.”

“Featuring a mild 143m ascent, the Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run Fun Run (+-8km) is the perfect event for younger runners,” adds Meyer. “This route is designed to ensure that entrants (young and old) enjoy a wonderful trail run in Buffelspoort. It’s perfect for the family to run together, even if you walk the entire way you will still enjoy it.”
