Entries for the 2020 Run the Rivers are open.

In order to allow more athletes access to the beauty of the original DrakDescent Route, and at the same time to allow Trail Runners the opportunity of Running along trails where they can converse with the paddlers and cyclists thus becoming part of this unique experience,  the Sani Spoors Team decided to host a Trail Run, for the first time in 2014, with 52 runners competing. 

The inaugural Run The Rivers followed the DrakMTB Challenge.  As a result of the rave reviews, the Spoors Team have dedicated time to improving this event year on year, with the aim of making it one of the Country’s Premier Trail Running Experiences. 

In 2019 we had 302 runners competing over both distances on offer daily.  Most of the trails, excluding the Sani Spoors routes, are only open for this event, on an annual basis.  This affords one an opportunity to traverse tracks in our mountain range that no-one else can or does! 

Cost for this event is R500 for both days
