Ingeli Sky Marathon & Trail Run
The Ingeli Forest Resort and its beautiful surrounds are trail running paradise, with the Ingeli Mountain range providing the absolute challenge
With four distances on offer, the event caters for all athletes, from experienced trail runners to novices just starting out.
The main event is the 42km Ingeli Sky Marathon, which presents a challenging mix of forest single track, climbing mountain paths, dirt jeep track and cut grass paths. The route passes through the most scenic parts of the Ingeli Forest, including waterfalls, streams and amazing views! The route takes runners to one of the highest points on the Ingeli Mountain where legs will certainly be tested!
The 21km race is the mini version of the Sky Marathon, following a similar, but shorter scenic route. It should not be underestimated, as it is still a tough and challenging trail run.
The 10km and 5km forest trail events do not venture onto the Ingeli Mountain, but still involve a few climbs and descents through the forested area. They have been designed for those looking for something shorter with the 5km well suited to beginner trail runners and children.
Walkers are welcome for both of the forest trail routes, and will probably be the only entrants who actually get to enjoy the wonderful birdlife the area has to offer.
