Over the last 2 weekends, I have had the pleasure of covering the opening 2 rounds of the KZN Trail Running Coastal Series that took place at Rocky Bay at Zululami Estate respectively. It was great to be behind the camera capturing such dedicated runners that got up before the crack of dawn to punish themselves. WHAT DEDICATION!!
The first event took place at Rocky Bay, thats on the KZN South Coast. After a week endless rain, it was great to be greeted by a stunning sunrise over the Indian Ocean that set the tone for a lovely morning out.
Was awesome to capture such enthusiasm from all the runners that just could not wait to get out on the trails. The Coastal Series has a distance for everyone, making it a whole family affair.
All in all, everyone had a great day out, with loads of memories and laughs to share no matter how hard it was out there.
The following weekend we traveled up the KZN North Coast, to Zululami Coastal Estate for the second round of the series. Unlike the first round, where the sun graced us with glorious weather, the sun came out with vengeance, turning the heat all the way up to maximum.
None the less, all athletes departed their various distances enthusiastically and with a huge smile on their faces.
Everyone had their own story to tell, from the heat to the hills, but all having a great time.
Both events were truly unique and offered something completely different. it was so awesome to be part of these 2 awesome events!
