Overview

Welcome back to the GKT Trails. And now for the 2022 version.

Last year was a hit, a blast, a party… and oh yes, there was some Trail Running and a lot of “Walkie Talkie”.

And in 2022, we are back with a vengeance.

Whether you are a hardcore Trail Runner or Walker, or someone who loves to take in the views and the scenery of somewhere new and somewhere different, this is the event for you.

Starting on Friday the 20th and finishing on Sunday the 22nd of May, this is a special event that will offer you something different, exciting and a cut above the rest.

This is something truly special. Beach trails, trips to waterfalls, ferry crossings, stop-off’s on the stunning Morgan Bay Cliffs and so much more. 

Don’t forget about a visit into the Old Transkei and a visit to some of the hotels in the area.

And to add to this, we have a feast of activities such as a welcome Braai, a trip to Bayview Farm for a Pizza night with live entertainment, and our special “After Party” on Sunday night. If you love your trails and you love a classy environment with loads, of fun, this is definitely for you.

Trail Options

We have two options for you to choose from.

The ORIGINAL version offers three days of Trail, all in the region of 34km down to 25km per day.

Then we have The “Walkie Talkie” or Lite version offering distances from 20km to 12km to 13km.

As far as the Trails go, we have an unbelievable mix of trail, beach, rocky bits, the odd mountain climb or descent, a relaxing piece of road, a fun river crossing on the ferry into the Old Transkei and more.

If you have a non-running partner, and they want to come along for the fun of it, they can stay with you, but will have to purchase a supporters package that includes accommodation and meals - this is for the Tented Option and the Hotel Option.

If you choose to fly in from anywhere in the country, we will have buses, courtesy of Luxliner Coaches, a division of Supergroup, waiting to pick you up at the East London Airport on the Thursday and take you to Morgan Bay. And after the fun is over, we will have buses to take you back to the airport on Sunday or Monday.

And whatever you do, do not leave on Sunday. Try and book a flight back on Monday as there is going to be a fun After Party on The Deck at the Morgan Bay Hotel. Something not to be missed.

If we have your attention, then spend some time on our website having a look at what the event is all about.

We want it to be fun, challenging and memorable.

After all, our motto is: “Collect Memories, Not Things”.
