Trail Run

Gluhwein & Blanket Run

This is a majestic venue located on the banks of the Magalies River so you’ll get to enjoy a spectacular morning out in the bush surrounded by magnificent wildlife, mighty pecanwood forests, meandering rivers, winding trails, great bon fires & scrumptious gluhwein together with like minded friends. There will hot coffee available before the run and an optional runners breakfast available after the run.

Participants will receive a branded mug as your medal after the run and Wild Africa Experiences will be offering the first Gluhwein fill to start the festivities (for those 18 years & older)

Timings will be available & emailed to runners for Discovery Vitality Points. You’ll note that walking is allowed and the cut off time is 2h00 hours. Water points will be available at several points on the run.

You’ll notice that no licence is necessary to take part in the run.

For anyone wishing to spend an evening or two, we do have special accommodation & “glamping’ rates on offer for those adventure seeking runners who want to experience some affordable luxury camping on the Magalies River. Any enquiries please contact

*** Last but not least, this one is about giving back to those in need ***
We kindly ask that in the spirit of running for a cause & warming up our community, each runner (or family) bring a blanket for those less fortunate. You're welcome to arrive wrapped up in those blankets but you're also welcome to leave them behind... All donations will be nominated to Little Falls Christian Centre.
