THE RUN


There are four distance to choose from. The 60 kilometre Husqvarna MTB X-treme starting at 07h30, the 40 kilometre Safire Classic at 08h00, the 18 kilometre Gwahumbe Family Experience Ride at 08h30 and the 10 kilometre Fun Ride 09h00. The new X-treme has been added to the programme The race starts along district and sugar cane roads to the Gwahumbe Game Reserve. This reserve features numerous technical 4x4 tracks. There are steep and sometimes rocky downhill sections, with stretches of inevitable uphill push along contour paths and jeep tracks. See hippo, rhino, giraffe, eland, kudu, nyala, wildebeest and many other plains game. The second half of the race takes you out of the reserve and along a contour path overlooking the river, then onto an easy commercial farmland section. Here the route links fast, exhilarating sections with exciting single track. The second half will prove easier than the first. The 18 kilometre fun ride takes place almost entirely in the Gwahumbe Reserve. The route goes along cane roads and jeep trails in the reserve. There are some short, sharp hills to negotiate.
