The Giant’s Cup is a 2-day trail run, set over the 5-day Giant’s Cup Hiking Trail, in the Maloti Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site in the Southern Drakensberg.

Runners will enjoy 62km of beautiful mountain trails and be able recover and relax afterwards in the comfort of the three resorts along the route.

Hiking Giants is the hiking option of the Giant’s Cup Trail Run. Many hikers are looking for a real physical challenge in the mountains on an ‘event’ style format, but without the requirement of running, and it is Hiking Giants ambition to provide that opportunity.

The principle beneficiary of The Giant’s Cup / Hiking Giants is the local branch of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (EKZNW) based at Cobham Nature Reserve. R500 per runner will be dedicated to this cause that will focus on local issues within the Maloti Drakensberg Park. These include alien vegetation, maintenance of the trails, funding of vital equipment for EKZNW staff and assistance with monitoring of critically endangered species such as the Bearded Vulture.
