UMGENI RIVER RUN ULTRA MARATHON, 25 KM & 10 KM

THE RUN


The Umgeni starts at the Inanda Dam Adventure Resort on its northern bank. The race is designed to take you into the pristine areas of the Umngeni Valley and offers an abundance of jeep- and single-track along with many long stretches of dirt road. The first 10 kilometres or so are run on tar roads along the valley floor before the route becomes dirt track. The route features a monstrous climb around halfway and two tricky river crossings in the final third of the run. The route is quite rugged and follows the Umgeni River for almost the entire way crossing over into the Duzi catchment only in the last few kilometres.
FACILITES
Bus transport to the start is available and leaves from Hillcrest at 05h00.
