Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series #6 Cullinan

A sunny Cullinan welcomed the runners to the last event of the 2018 Nissan Trailseeker trail run series. Athletes were excited to test the newly marked trails running through unique areas, which provided much anticipated sights.

Half-marathon runners kicked off the day in good spirit, with series favorite Poppy Mlembo at the front of the batch. The runners had to dig deep to get through some parts of the climbs and rough terrain.

Givemore Mudzinganyama and Poppy Mlembo took a convincing win at the Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series #6 Cullinan event.

Families enjoyed a fun day out while doing the Pram Jam 3km leg of the event. Smiles were seen on young and old alike throughout the race.

“This is the perfect venue to conclude the 2018 series. Our vision for the 2019 series, is to grow the trail running events’ participation and interest to attract new talent.” Race Director – Francois Theron.
