The Arthur Creswell Memorial UltraMarathon takes place on the 6th of April 2019, from Bergville to Ladysmith (KZN). Distance options: 52km, 21.1km & 5km fun run.
The Arthur Creswell Memorial race is run largely in open country. It is relatively easy but there is Child’s Hill to negotiate, between the 12- and 18-kilometre marks, which is quite a test of fitness. Once you are over this hill, at about 30 kilometres, cross the highway and turn onto a sand road. This provides a welcome break from the visual monotony as you run through forest and farm areas. After the turn back onto the main Ladysmith Road you will find some testing pulls at about 45 kilometres. Here it is hot and hard but the end is near. The run into Ladysmith is easy and mainly downhill.
This event is a qualifier for the Comrades Marathon.
