Kolsvlei MTB & Trail Run Trails
We are launching an exciting new event format to keep you coming back for more throughout the year!
Join us at the 5 Kolsvlei Challenge Days! We will have exciting prizes for the first male and female rider that crosses the finish line at each challenge day. We also have a complimentary Beer or Squillos Chocolate Milk for everyone that finishes the 25km loop sponsored by Boland Superspar. Runners and hikers can compete in a 5 km Fun Run also for strollers or take on the15 km Trail Run Challenge. Riders are welcome to do multiple 25km loops to reach up to 100 km. Those who complete the 4 loops will receive a Kolsvlei MTB 100km medal.
We will tally the points after each challenge day and post them on Facebook book and ultimately crown the 2020 Kolsvlei Challenge Day Champions at the final Challenge Day on the 10th of October.
We’ll be using Strava as timing platform for the year – so be sure to capture that ‘Morning Run/Ride’ when you set off to run or ride your best times on the Kolsvlei segments! We have 10 Strava Segments on the route and we urge you to give it your all as the King and Queen of each segment will also receive some amazing prizes at the end of the year!
