On the weekend of August 18 and 19 the family-focused Marriott Dargle Trails Festival takes place at the Lion’s River Club in The Dargle outside Howick.
This will be the event’s 7th year and Howick-based KZN Trail Running has partnered with the festival this year to help make this staging extra-special.
The event appeals to trail enthusiasts of all ages and different backgrounds and is also 100% dog friendly! In 2018 much of the focus will be put on the trail running events, but this will not draw away from the other exciting activities on offer.
On the Saturday, after an exhilarating morning on the trails, participants can look forward to a post-lunch yoga session to help them recover. After that, they can relax and take in the exhibition polo match as well as live music.
For the trail enthusiast who prefers to enjoy the outdoors with their equine companion, there will be a lunchtime social outride.
Sunday sees the trail adventures continue with more trail running and walking as well as a 3km kids and dogs event. Add to that mountain bike distances of 5, 10 and 19km and that means the whole family should manage to get their trail fix.
Trail runners can either choose a 2-day stage event or a single day run on either the Saturday or Sunday, with plenty of different distance options on offer; you get to choose what distance you will run each day!
