Pursuit Challenge is taking on a new race format for the third challenge. We’re finishing off the year underneath the stars with a night race at Buffelsdrift Trail Park on Friday, 22 January 2021. A light is compulsory to start with and to complete the challenge. The 30km route will be marked with neon tape and lights.

A refreshment table will be in place at the 16km mark, but you will need to fill up your bottles beforehand. Families are welcome to join in on the fun and dine at the restaurant while waiting. 

The timing works like all the other Pursuit Challenge races:

  • Join our Strava group 

  • Submit your ride 

  • Live results on the website 

  • Age categories will receive prizes on Monday 25 January 2021, as well as the best-dressed/ most lit’.

We have a few basic rules all participants need to adhere to, read more here: https://pursuitchallenge.co.za/rules/

More detail about the route: 

Riders will start with a 1km neutral section behind the lead vehicle, the first 3km is flat followed by the concrete climb (1.7km and 110m elevation gain). Thereafter, mostly downhill for the next 15km with a good mixture of jeep track and non-technical single track, you are sure to have a blast! We have a ‘refreshment’ station at the 16km mark with some fun photo opportunities.No ride in Buffelsdrift will be complete without adding in Ockies and the brand new Supertube 2.0 to complete a perfect night on two wheels! Total 30km with 400m elevation gain.
