Stellenbosch based personal trainer, running coach and formidable trail runner, Chantel Nienaber is keeping things interesting by adding the Origin Of Trails Trail Run to the training schedule of her client base.

“I love being out in nature,” admits Nienaber. “It allows me to feel wild and free. The Origin Of Trails Trail Run will take place on the same trails that I run on every week with my running group, ‘Ladies Running Wild’. I can’t think of a better way to start our year end party than to be running and/or walking the Origin Of Trails Trail Run.

“Afterwards we’ll have a pool party to celebrate another year of fitness and good health. I am happy to say that this time round I won’t be racing, but will rather be enjoying the trails with likeminded people.”

Cape Town-based Marisa Agnello has eagerly accepted her coach’s challenge: “I used to be more of a roadie, before Chantel introduced me to the wonders of trail running,” admits Agnello.

“I have never looked back. Trail running is always a challenging adventure, not knowing what mountain you have to climb next. Also you get to see and experience the most beautiful scenery. Nothing beats the feeling of running as fast as you can down a single track!

“I can’t wait to be part of the vibe at the Origin Of Trails Trail Run. Our whole running group will be taking part as our official year end function, just adding to the fun!”
