Running free on the berg and beach...

Trail running is an outdoor pursuit growing at exponential rates in South Africa. With the vast and varied landscape in which we live, awesome trails exist that unfold through mountains, along coastlines and into out-of-the-way places that only the fit and adventurous get to experience.

Active Escapes offer trail running getaways to suite all levels of athlete, specialising in the terrains of the Wild Coast, KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and the Drakensberg. Using our point-to-point fully supported tours means you're left to run wild and free, while we transport your bags to the foot of the next comfy bed and ensure the beers are frosty upon your arrival.

The Lower Wild Coast hotel-hopping section and the Giants Cup Berg trail are our pioneer destinations for trail running with well positioned hotels and guest houses to chose from, and easy logistic support.

However, Active Escapes specialises in tailor made tours so many of our hiking products could potentially be trail run with some modifications to distances and logistics. You name the destination and we'll make your trail run holiday a reality! enquire with Active Escapes
