So what we thought would be a little beach run from Umhlanga to Durban ended up being bigger than we could have ever expected! Over 1500 runners and walkers of all shapes and sizes joined us on the 10th August for The Sandy Beach run/walk and boy did they have a good time. Awesome weather, the lowest of low tides and a 20m Dockpro floating bridge to get them over Blue Lagoon all made for a thrilling day out.

We would like to thank everyone who joined us on that epic Sunday and hope that you will help us grow this event even bigger in the years to come as we try to embed it on the KZN winter calendar as a truly iconic Durban event.

From the sand and sea of Durbs, we head up to the forests and trails of the Provinces capital, Pietermaritzburg, as we launch a brand new trail running series, The Impi Outrun. With the first event in the series taking place at the world renowned Cascades MTB Park on 28th September, this will be a trail running experience you won’t want to miss. Plus there will be one or two surprises thrown in to keep it interesting…

Its all about the running experience and value for money. No Fuss, Just Trail! With a 14km and 7km course to choose from, the event has a route to cater for all skill levels and will be a good way to introduce newbies to the sport of trail running. Entries are open now and you can enter via ROAG on www.roag.co.za

We would love to hear from you and get your views on events around SA so like us on Facebook (Impi Concepte Events), follow us on Twitter (@ImpiEvents) and get the conversation started.

Until the next one, Keep it Real!

The IMPI Team
