TRAIL print subscription

Get yourself four great print issues (one year) of TRAIL when you subscribe to South Africa’s leading trail running magazine.

An eight issue (two year) subscription is also available.

Want digital instead?

An optional extra is a bright Go Multi BUFF which you can add to your Cart for just R120 extra (its regular price is R180).

When will I get my mag?

We post new signup subscribers from Durban, so if you live further afield, expect your mag a few working days after you’ve subscribed.

Bulk subscriptions are sent from Cape Town when new issues are released.

My mag is taking a while to arrive…

If you do not receive your magazine within two weeks of signing up*, please email so we can correct the potential issue as quickly as possible.

Please don’t do the following:

  • Leave it for a year (as some have done), and then ask for something to be done about several issue non-deliveries. 
  • Go to the store and buy a replacement. Rather email us to let us know within two weeks of you being informed by our mass Trail Mail email that it was sent out.

If you stick to the above guidelines, we can check we sent to the correct address, and also send you a replacement. You won’t get an extension if you go to the store and buy a copy you should have received as part of your subscription.

*This only applies to issues where you choose the existing issue, not a pending issue.

How many issues do I have left?

Final issue flysheet TRAIL magazine postedWhen you receive your second and subsequent issues, you’ll notice a Remaining Issues section on the flysheet that is on the outside facing side of your envelope. When your subscription is about to lapse (as indicated by a FINAL on your flysheet, see sample attached), it’s recommended you re-subscribe within a month to ensure your subscription continues without any glitches.

Which address is better?

Please provide a PO Box address where possible. There was a time during the 2014 postal strike when the best delivery method was hand-deliveries to street addresses, but now a PO Box is more reliable.

I’m buying a gift…

Nice! By including the recipient’s email address in the comments box when checking out, you give them the benefit of being kept informed about magazine news, our online calendar, and other info that will be of interest to them.

When ordering a Buff®

Go Multi_Buff designWhen you subscribe to TRAIL you can buy an authentic Go Multi Buff® for just R100 (normal price is R180). That’s four issues of TRAIL and a Buff® for a total of R300.

An authentic Buff® is a must-have clothing item for the modern adventurer as it is a versatile, comfortable, lifesaver in the outdoors with uses from a beanie to bandana to scarf to wrist wipe to laptop shell protector to eye shield to neck flap!

Each Go Multi Buff® is branded with multiple Go Multi ‘Go’ icons, as illustrated to the right.

You are protected by our money-back guarantee. If you’re not happy with your Buff®, return it with original cardboard packaging and we’ll refund you the purchase price, less a R30 delivery and handling fee.

If you are starting your subscription with the Next Issue option, be aware that additional products, such as your Go Multi Buff®, will only be sent out with your magazine when that magazine is released. If you want your Buff® sent immediately, please select it as a separate option in your order, not as the reduced rate combo. It will be priced at the higher individual Buff® price.

TRAIL readers say…

  • How can you not get a five star review? It’s clear when you page through this magazine that a lot of attention to detail is put into it. Justin Dearham, 22 Jan 2018.
  • Awesome Awesome Awesome Awesome Awesome Awesome Awesome. Nico Loubser, 18 Jan 2018
  • Absolutely awesome magazine. And really a magazine “for the people by the people”. Sounds like a cliche but it isn’t really as I’ve seen Deon and other Trail Mag peeps at the races I’ve run, hundreds of kilos away from their home base, covering the events with much gusto! Johan Britz, 18 Jan 2018
  • I love the current edition of the mag (I purchased issue 17 for Mark)… I was very reluctant to post it! Well done on a really fabulous, gritty, informative, appealing publication that caters for all levels of trail runners.
    Thanks again, Mandy Uys, East London 5 stars rating
  • After subscribing I was worried that the transaction didn’t go through properly – and that it was processed too late for me to receive the Salomon trail running DVD. I sent one simple email and I got the speediest reply ensuring me that the mags and the DVD was on its way. Even got a Dirty Boots adventure booklet and a pen. Great service for a great mag! Can’t wait for the next one… Thanks again for sorting it out so quickly! You guys are on fire. Marike du Plessis 5 stars rating
  • I recently signed up for a one-year TRAIL subscription and have been so impressed with the quality of the mag! Great articles and awesome service – even received a hand written note with my first mag!! Keep up the good work! B. Grieve  5 stars rating
  • I recently subscribed online for the Trail Magazine for myself and a friend. From the beginning of the subscription process, right up to the time I received my first issue with all the added goodies, it was pure pleasure. I made a little ooopsie with my subscription in that I did not submit both delivery addresses, but pronto whoohoo… I got an email and a call, in order to remedy the situation. A few days later, my first mag arrived. I was delighted!
    Thank you staff for being efficient and also super user friendly. Thank you too for all the informative articles. A road runner, I recently relocated from Johannesburg to Sabie where I am surrounded by forest, so trail became the more sensible option and your mag has made that change over so much easier. I am now equipped with my Salomon’s and my next step is to get my hydration kit. Your mag, with great articles and adverts, has really assisted me to know what I need and where to get it. Thank you and keep up the good work! Lyn  5 stars rating
  • “Got my TRAIL mag in the post yesterday. Awesome read, every page.” Stefan Kleynhans 5 stars rating
  • I LOVE your mag, it is such a contrast to ******. Duncan Moore 5 stars rating
  • “Charles loves your magazine – he almost cut short his holiday to get the latest edition which was sitting on his desk.” Linda, January 2017 5 stars rating
