The Middle presents the first of its endurance challenge series taking place on the 14th September 2024.

Solo runners and teams of two or four will be required to set a goal of how many loops they will aim to run or hike within 8 hours. Each loop is ± 5km along well marked trails within Virginia Bush, Durban North.

The festive event village will include inspiring guest speakers, food vendors, spectator support, spot prizes and more.

Whether you are a beginner runner, an ultra-athlete or a corporate team, join us as you break through your limits, navigate The Middle and finish well.
