A cool morning kicked off the first edition of the Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series held at the amazing Legends MX trail park close to Pretoria. Runners braced the misty routes into the breath-taking hills that were awaiting them at the split. The views overlook the airfield and spectacular farm landscapes, with a few technical sections in-between. Each section had something different to offer the runners, from challenging ascents with rewarding landscape views, to the flat sections giving the runners some breathing room.
Each water point was stacked with delicious snacks to keep the runners fuelled throughout the race. Every mom received a Bavaria Radler at the end of the race, as well as a Bavaria 0.00% alcohol drink in each goody bag. There were chilled Sunday vibes at the venue whilst waiting for the 40-kilometre runners to finish.
“It was an exciting day out for everyone at Advendurance. This was the first event of the Series and we definitely enjoyed creating each route, especially the new Mara40 route for more serious trail runners. Our aim is to get more families involved at every event and hope to see them at Buffelsdrift on 30 June 2019.” Leon Odendaal, Race Director
