THE RUN


This is a self-navigated mountain bike race starting in Rhodes and ending in Cradock. You are allowed a maximum of six days to complete the ride. The route follows a section of the Freedom Trail known as the Stormberg which goes over a wide variety of off-road terrain including dirt and farm roads, old historical wagon routes and animal tracks. Apart from the riding, there a few portage sections where you will have to hike, push and even carry your bike.                                                                                                                                     The route is not marked and you will need to navigate by means of maps, compass and narrative directions. The use of GPS devices for navigation during the race is not allowed and will lead to disqualification. Distances between support stations vary from 67 kilometres to 131 kilometres.
