Ultra-Trail® Drakensberg

Ultra-Trail® Drakensberg (UTD) is a festival of trail running with events of 100km, 62km, 30km and the Drakensberg Rockjumper a two day trail run with distances of 21km and 15km.

All events take place within the Southern area of the internationally renowned Maloti Drakensberg World Heritage Site and are point-to-point in nature, ensuring that large swathes of this iconic wilderness are traversed. Incorporating and skirting some of the legendary features of the Southern Drakensberg such as Sani Pass, Twelve Apostles, Khanti Ridge, Gxalingenwa Gorge, Hodgson’s Peaks, Garden Castle, Rhino Peak and Langalibalele’s Pass participants in UTD will experience mountain running at its very finest.

The 100km, 62km, 30km events are entirely on mountain trails (excepting the first 12km of the 100km event) to ensure a pure trail running experience which is further emphasised by an altitude bandwidth of 1600m-2865m. Runners will enjoy the company of some of the flagship fauna of the area including the mighty Eland and the critically endangered Bearded Vulture while the presence of the ancient San people will surround them in the shape of their world famous Rock Art.

UTD is an ITRA registered event and an official qualifier for UTMB®.
