Scope of event

The event consists of 2 consecutive days of trail running over different trails within the Krantzkloof
Nature Reserve, extending into the Molweni Township.



Undertaking

It is agreed:
That on completion of the event the protected area shall be free of pollutants, litter or signs of the sporting event and fully rehabilitated except in areas specifically designated otherwise.

The event will be undertaken in a manner that minimizes negative impact on the environment and will strive to find solutions that add to the sustainability of the protected area. This EMP is in place to outline the means, methods & manner in which this will be achieved, including monitoring & auditing throughout the event by KZN Ezemvelo Wildlife.

The Environment:
Located on the coastal escarpment to the west of Durban between the towns of Pinetown and Hillcrest. The Krantzkloof Nature Reserve (KKNR) is 584 ha in extent and is covered by
dense coastal forest and grasslands above the deep gorges carved out by the Molweni and Nqutu Rivers. There are two view sites and three trails.

The KKNR’ s breathtaking scenery is the result of deep incisions of the Molweni and Nqutu Rivers – tributaries of the Umgeni – into the Kloof plateau.
