A highlight in the trail running and MTB calendars, the Marriott Dargle Trails Festival, hosted by the Lions River Club in the Dargle Valley, promises again to be a wonderful day out, with activities for the whole family. The trails will follow a similar route to the 2016 event with spectacular views making the climbs worthwhile. The trails are generally tough, but not very technical, although there are sections of exciting single track for the more seasoned cyclists. The runners will also enjoy clear paths and a challenging route that takes them through a variety of scenery and vegetation.
The 2017 Festival offers three trail running events (6, 12 and 21km), two MTB events (6 and 21km), a 3km fun, family, dog walk, and a 12km horseback social ride. A portion of the proceeds from the fun family walk will go to the SPCA, and a portion of the proceeds from the horse trail will go to the KZN Coastal Horse Care Unit. Trail runners will be permitted to take dogs on the 6km and 12km routes.
Pre-entries for the trail running and MTB events are open on www.roag.co.za, with registration for the horse outride and the fun family dog walk taking place on the day. For more info, visit www.dargletrailsfestival.co.za
