So, you have your new Securi-Lid and you are looking to make the most of it? Why not head out into the wild and get involved in trail running. Trail running is very different to road running in that it is more about the adventure and experience than clocking the fastest time.

Below are our 5 favourite starter trails around South Africa. On all of these trails you will find a blend of walker and runners, some fast some slow like us, but all out enjoying the great outdoors.

  • Kloof SPCA Trail in KZN. IT is 2.4Km long and is a great starter trail.
  • Aston Lake Loop in Gauteng is 2.3Km and is one of the easiest on the list.
  • Van Stadens River Trail in the Eastern Cape is 5Km long and is great for walks and trail runs.
  • Meerendal Trail Running in the Western Cape is 6.1Km and is regularly voted as one of SA’s top trails
  • Bloem Water in the Free State is 3.2Km is a lovely scenic starter trail

If you are getting started with trail running make sure you have a good pair of shoes. Traction is going to be your friend out on the trail. Also always make sure you have enough water and nutrition is you are planning on doing a longer run.

A good camera is a great tool for a trail runner, as we am sure you will get some great scenic shots in.

Then rest safe in the knowledge that all your goods are safely locked in your load bed thanks to your Securi-Lid, and head out and enjoy your trail.
