JAN HARMSGAT MTB & TRAIL RUN FESTIVAL - 2 DAY STAGE RACE

12-13 June 2021

If you planned to join us in 2020 at the end of March for our inaugural JHG MTB and Trail Run Festival, then you will be glad to hear that this event will now take place on the 12th and 13th of June 2021.

Just a 2-hour drive outside of Cape Town on the R60 highway, off the N2, as you head into the Garden Route you’ll find this gem of a historic farm, Jan Harmsgat.

Just across the road, lies the 680-hectare working farm with hand-picked cultivars that make the single-block JHG Wines. 

The tranquil country setting that surrounds all of Jan Harmsgat offers guests the peace to revitalize their spirit.
Jan Harsmgat is also known for its child-friendly facilities.

Mardouw Olive Estate is a neighboring farm to Jan Harmsgat at the foothills of the Langeberg Mountains.  Mardouw produces pure, natural extra virgin olive oils, made from hand-picked olives and same-day cold extraction of the best cultivars on the estate itself.
