Faster than we can imagine, summer turns to winter and after a few cold nights, we start planning and preparing for the warmer summer days. We are thrilled to bring you more improvements, new energy, excitement and much more in our new edition of this iconic Southern Drakensberg event, the Euro Steel: Run the Rivers.
As a result of an overwhelming number of requests coming in from potential entrants, we would first like to offer our faithful previous entrants a preferential entry period. To those that have heard the hype, but have not had an opportunity to enter in the past, never fear, there may still be a spot or two available when the entries open to the public. Jump in and enter in order to be placed on the waiting list for entry allocation once the preferential entries close!
The organisers of the Euro Steel Run The Rivers trail runs have committed to a wholly GPS-navigated event, entrenching the event’s commitment to minimizing its impact on the environment.
The two-day event uses a network of trails in the sensitive Maloti-Drakensberg Park grasslands and local farmlands and has for a number of years pursued a “green event” strategy that the organisers are extending for the upcoming event on January 28 and 29 2023.
“We have always been a ‘green event’ in terms of looking at every aspect of our event organization and its direct and indirect impact on the environment,” said Sani Spoors’ Pierre Horn.
“Our runners have become familiar with our philosophy of using GPS trail marking, but we have in recent years supplemented this with some physical marking on the course at critical points where a participant without a GPS might get lost.
“This year we are going 100% GPS navigated and there will be no physical route marking,” he stressed.
