I’ll be spending both nights of the inaugural ‘Run the Berg‘ at Greenfire Lodge, deep in the quiet heart of the Northern Drakensberg. It seems the perfect spot to rest and refuel during the peak of the #CountryCyclist adventure. This picturesque swathe of the famous Amphitheatre is also the sort of spot Country Life readers tend to rave about. I asked owner Andy Dott what to expect when I get there in three weeks.

It’s getting real – fast! Just over a week until #CountryRunner takes on the Northern Berg with a few hundred other brave souls! Here’s a final note from organisers of the inaugural Run the Berg - http://goo.gl/rs6tgl

After 15 years of big-city banking, Warren King decided it was enough. He bid farewell to Investec and before he knew it, he had the makings of his next big idea: Run the Berg. That’s how he met #CountryRunner...

I rolled in to Three Tree Hill at lunch time on Sunday after the second 25km leg of Run the Berg 2014.  That left just long enough for a delicious lasagna, a quick shower and one of the best game walks I can remember... http://outoftheoffice.countrylife.co.za/?p=1045 #CountryRunner

It's as if this car was built with a picture of #CountryRunner framed on the wall in Ford's design studio. If you live in the suburbs and head out into the countryside at every chance you get, it could work for you, too.
