Press Release: Running Wild
Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series #2 Legends MX
The second trail run event of the Nissan Trailseeker Series took place at the famous Legends MX Trail Park, where runners gathered to take part in what is known as one of the most anticipated events on the Nissan Trailseeker Series calendar. New routes were especially constructed to surprise runners with a unique experience and to discover what Legends MX has to offer.
A late morning start encouraged runners to grab a quick cup of coffee, to warm up before the race. The runners were quick out of the blocks, with 30-minutes separating the first and last groups. The cold breeze carried the fun vibes from all athletes across the course throughout the morning. The half marathon runners were challenged with a tough climb early in the race and a glorious single-track route through forests and game farms.
Tranquil Gumbo & Farida Zwane blazed throughout the trail and took the win for the second round of the Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series.
“We are proud of the success stories and excitement for our Nissan Trailseeker Trail Run Series. We look forward to host many more runners across the country throughout the year. Hope to see you in the Western Cape for the Grabouw event.” Francois Theron (Event Director).
