Our Story


Trailbusters opened their doors in 2012. At the time, local sport stores seemed to think that trail running was just a crazy phase that runners were going through.There were hardly any options back then and trail runners weren’t exactly spoilt for choice.


Bradley and Aiden Mackenzie started this store from their garage with small specialized trail goods.Their motto has always been to provide honest and good advice. We are not just sales people, We run ourselves and therefore know the terrain and needs of trail runners. We value feedback from our clients which we pass onto future runners.

In 2019 the store was moved to a larger indoor premises located in Walmer, Port Elizabeth. We were fortunate enough to include Shelby Van Rooyen, an avid runner as part of our dynamic team that same year.

Our stock ranges from the highest-quality “hard-to-find trail running equipment”, clothing and nutrition products just to mention a few..

We offer expert advice to all trail enthusiasts from beginners to veterans, young and old.

2021 will be a Carpe Diem year for all, Thanks for the support.
