    • Round 3 Autumn Trail Running Series

      3Rivers trails hosted the third round of the autumn trail running series on the 8th April. By all accounts the event went very smoothly with runners enjoying the organisation of the event and the scenery on offer. Big O event sports management, who organised the event has this to say: "Breathtaking.  Enjoyable.  The Best of The Bay.  These are some of the words we heard runners use to describe their experience of The Three River Trials during The 2018  Autumn Trail Series #03 – Supported by Coimbra Cycle Centre.  The single track options offer so much variety from running in forests to open farm fields and mountain tops with the most spectacular views.  No matter the terrain though, the trials have been well managed allowing for a run that will not be disturbed with having to clear your own trail.  Organizing events with Three River Trials is an absolute pleasure." Below is also some pictures from the day: [gallery type="rectangular" ids="885,886,888,889,890,891,892,893,894"]…

    • New Extension to the Yellow Monkey

      3Rivers has just added a new trail with a loop running alongside the Van Stadens offering up stunning views of the old railway bridge, the gorge, wild flower reserve and the N2 Van Stadens bridge. The loops adds approximately 3 kilometres to the Yellow Monkey and, like the rest of the Yellow Monkey, is suitable to all levels of rider. It was built specifically to provide users with a chance enjoy some of beautiful natural scenery that the Eastern Cape has in abundance but which for the most part seems to fly under the radar. [gallery type="rectangular" ids="867,868,869,870,871,872,863,861,843"] The trail branches off about halfway on the top yellow, with riders turning left off the main trail and entering into gently undulating single track running along the gorge and offering several places to stop and admire the view. The most dramatic of these probably being on the most southerly point on the trail where you can look across the gorge and admire the engineering ingenuity of the Van Stadens Bridge which looms 130 metres above the river.…
