The Mountain Marathon Series

The ethos of the Mountain Marathon Series is to keep things raw and grounded. We are going to look to the Mountains and the Earth for our pleasure. 

a raw & grounded series

We aim to bring a good “karma” to each race village which will be set up in a simple, practical and warm fashion. Of course there will be a few small tents and flags and supporting sponsors adding value where they can to each event, but the focus is on the massive natural assets we challenge ourselves upon the mountains.

While the focus is on the experience and developing our abilities and ourselves on mountain trails, the competition between the athletes will not go unnoticed. And some modest prize money will be awarded to podium positions. Age categories will also be recognized.

Time to run your heart out!

For those racing snakes out there – in addition to winning modest prize money for podiuming at any MMS event, a place in the top six in the male or female categories for three of the six Mountain Marathon events will win you a free entry AND a two-night stay at the stunning Alpine Heath Resort in Bergville for the final of the series – the Drakensberg Trail Festival – on the 4th and 5th of December 2021!

  With four events left in the series (Kruger2Canyon, Ingeli, Soutpansberg and Uitsoek), there is more than enough time to line up this great challenge!
