Due to continued damage to our temp boards and theft of riders not handing in their race boards back to our timing team.

We had to make the difficult decision of implementing a new system where you can buy your very own permanent race number, having to discontinue our loss of temporary boards for on the day.

This one you can use time and time again and is assigned to your name, meaning that it is yours and you register for the race online, having no need to collect your number from registration queue, you sign up online and show up at the start line for the race.

Your brand new permanent board will cost you R70, alternatively can you rent one of the old raceboards from us for R20.

This is in line with other time keeping companies, it will shorten the registration queues for repeated riders, making it more convenient and make the number collection process faster.

Route Profiles

The routes have been well designed to have a good balance of jeep track (to prevent bunching) and single track (to keep it fun).  
The profiles are mostly flatish with a small amount of climbing on the longer distances.
