Do You Want To Feel The True Thrill Of Running Wild?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run wild and free through true African wilderness?

Imagine being surrounded by the animals, sights and sounds of the African bush as you test yourself against the incredible distance & mental challenges of an ultra trail run.

If you are looking for a truly wild trail running adventure, then we invite you to take on the Addo Elephant Trail Run through the vast and beautiful Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

Experience The Addo Elephant Trail Run

The Addo Elephant Trail Run was the first triple ultra distance trail running event in South Africa, offering a choice of 100 Mile, 76km or 44km distance ultra-trail runs.

Originally founded in 2005, it is also South Africa’s oldest 100 Mile ultra trail race.

The 100 Mile distance was resurrected in 2016 with a new and challenging route that takes runners from one end of the park to the other and back again.

Both the 76km and the 44km races take place on sections of the same course, just with slightly less elevation gain.

The courses also take runners through some of the most remote wilderness in the Addo Elephant National Park, through areas they would not be able to access any other way.
Come and feel the excitement and thrill of running wild through the African bush!

Addo is the ONLY national park in the world that can lay claim to having the Big 7 (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, southern right whale and the great white shark).

With race routes designed to test you both mentally and physically, the trails track the rugged Zuurberg mountains and beautiful valleys of the park.

You will be challenged to run on a wide range of terrain including single track trails, 4x4 tracks and old jeep tracks within the park itself, as well as some stretches of dirt road.

You will encounter a large number of river crossings, and will also face some challenging climbs, with expansive views at the top that are simply amazing!

You will be running in areas of the park that are home to a variety of wild animals, and you stand a chance of seeing animals such as kudu, impala, baboons, ostriches, bushbuck, black backed jackals, mountain reedbuck, red hartebeest, mountain zebra, warthogs and the largest antelope in the world - the eland! These have all been spotted on our various route recces in the park.

For safety purposes you are kept away from those areas of the park with lions, elephant, rhino or buffalo, but you are free to explore these areas before or after the race.

We are exceptionally privileged to be able to present an ultra trail event of this calibre in such an amazing location, and to provide our athletes with the opportunity to see and experience it from such a unique perspective.

Read what previous trail runners have to say about Addo …

The most incredible experience I’ve had in a long time.

Teary, relieved, overwhelmed, authentically #rokkkierunner.

Completely Over the moon to have finished 4th lady, 23rd overall in the 76km Addo. Thank you for an incredible event. This turned into my best race yet. Beyond any expectations!

If I had known what an amazing experience it would turn out to be, I would probably have done it sooner.

The race organisers, thank you for the hours you put in behind the scenes to make this a world class event. Thank you so much as well for the personal support, and big smiles at the finishing line and prize giving.

Till next time Addo. Stay wild.

Competing in the Addo Ultra trail run was by far the best and most humbling experience on a trail.

I was trying to think of the perfect words to sum up my experience, so in short…”It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity”.

Thanks for once again hosting a world class event.
