Jan Harmsgat MTB & Trail Run Festival - 2 Day Stage Race
Sat 28 May - Sun 29 May 2022 @ Langeberg Local Municipality, Western Cape

Onsite Events


28 & 29 May 2022

After the success of our 1st 2 day stage event at JHG we are looking forward to our next one in 2022.

We learned a lot with the 1st one and hope that the changes that we bring in will make your experience more special.

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.

There will be no tented accommodation at JHG. There is more than enough guest lodges on the Langeberg Meander and a list with affordable special rates will be posted closer to the time. We will try to support local!!

The MTB and Trail Run will "swap" every day with most of the trails on different sections of the farm to avoid riders and runners being on the same trails at the same time.


Food vendors will be available.

A Craft beer and Gin stand will be available.
