The TOUGH-MAN Trail Run
The TOUGH-MAN Trail Run Series has no obstacles, no Zombies, and definitely no Military-style combat soldiers shouting orders at you. What it does have is some insane terrain, mystical valleys, windy dirt tracks, amazingly high waterfalls, creepy chain ladders a few dangerously wild animals and of course... YOU!

The TOUGH-MAN Trail Series is not extremely difficult, but it gives each competitor an amazing taste of trail-running while enjoying South Africa's breath-taking scenery and wildlife. Freedom Trails, situated right in the centre of Hillcrest, is the new home of the Tough-Man Trail Series. This is a brand new MTB and Adventure venue which is launching in June 2014 and is a fitting venue for launching our 3 Tough-Man events. The Venue is right in the centre of the Hillcrest Area, opposite Plantations and borders on the M13 Highway providing easy access on and off the M13 highway. Freedom Trails boards the Giba Gorge Conservancy and is home to a unique compliment of rare and threatened ecosystems with an impressive list of animals and plants. The towering slopes, cliffs and gorges were once home to Stone Age people, evidence of which has been unearthed at the Umhlatuzana Rock Shelter.

The Tough-Man Trail series will consist of an 8km and 16km Timed Trail Runs. As this is a family event we have also included a Kiddies Race which will consist of a 2km run. The Kids Trail Run is a safe and secure trail that is visible from the Start and finish area. There are some steep climbs and descents, but nothing too technical for the little people.

The Tough-Man Trail Run Series entry fee for the 8km Trail run is R90pp, 16km entry fee is R120pp and the Kiddies Trail Run is R15pp. The 16km Trail run event is the only event which will have a water table along the way, so bring your hydrations packs.
