#ThrowbackThursday We look back at some of our most favourite sporting events and what makes them so great.
WildJoburg Trail Run
Johannesburg, the urban heart of South Africa, has become a trail runners dream destination over the last 5 years. How did this happen you might ask? Surely trail running can't be popular in the concrete jungle, running up and down strairs and paved sidewalks don't count as trail running. Be prepared to be amazed, Johannesburg in all it's hustle and bustle can actually boast with some unique natural trails and one such exception is Thaba Trails in Mulbarton, home to the WildJoburg Trail run.
Ten minutes south of the city centre, WildJoburg provides Joburgers with an unprecedented opportunity to test themselves against pristine Highveld trails without having to leave the city. WildJoburg presents a moderate 5km, a tough 10km, and a beast of a 20km. The inexperienced novice, the crossover roadrunner who is tired of the tar, and the experienced mountain runner will all be challenged by the professionally developed trails set spectacularly amongst the indigenous fauna and flora that once covered the Highveld.
We look back at some of WildJoburg's photos from past events which will motivate you during this #lockdown to enter their next event : WildJoburg Winter Trail - Saturday 27th June 2020
