1. Drakensberg Amphitheatre – Northern Drakensberg.
If you read my blog you will know I love running in the mountains. There are many fantastic places to run, but if I have to choose one place in the Drakensberg it is here. The Mont-Aux-Sources 50km Challenge runs to the top of the amphitheater and back.
2. Kruger National Park.
I’ve been lucky enough to run races here a few times but even if it is not a race, just running in the camp where we are staying is still incredibly special. This is just a special place.
3. Trails close to my house – Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve.
These are my favorite trails. I know them extremely well and do most of my trail training here.
4. Johannesburg CBD.
This will surprise a lot of people but I love Johannesburg. I’ve lived here my whole life and running through the CBD is exciting and different.
5. Next to the ocean.
This can be anywhere at the coast. I live inland so running at the coast while looking at the ocean is always special. It also means lots of oxygen as Johannesburg is at altitude!:) My next race is the Odyssey Ultra and will follow the coastline for 90km…exciting!
Have you got a favorite place to run?
Have a fantastic week everyone!
