Just 15 km north of Pretoria close to the Roodeplaat dam, lies a lush bushveld haven waiting to be discovered by trail runners. The third trail run of the Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series takes place in what surely must be described as trail running heaven, the Buffelsdrift Trail Park. The trails have been purpose built to challenge and excite every level of runner and are maintained in pristine condition. The terrain is hard and rocky amongst the grasslands and, depending on your chosen distance, will lead you up challenging rocky sections. Gentle bushveld single track makes for ideal game watching, so keep an eye out for antelope or warthog when out on the trails. The proximity of the Roodeplaat dam as well as the extensive canal network and Pienaars river that runs through the Buffelsdrift Conservancy gives the area a lush, abundant appeal and attracts a wide variety of birds. Don’t sleep late on Sunday, but join us on the 3 km pram jam, 5 km, 10 km or 21 km and join the trail movement…
Choose your race category and experience the best value available in the industry. Late entry fees apply from Thursday before the race and on race day.

If you have a SASeeding armband, you do not have to visit the pre-registration venues.
We are changing up the running scene by eliminating the registration process and getting our clients to experience the trails without standing in long queues. If you already have a SASeeding armband, you don’t have to go to pre-registration at all. There will be a Scan & Go station at the event to check if the armband is in working condition, more time for coffee with the buddies. Goody bags will be handed out after the race, along with your medal and nutrition.
