Outlaw Media

500km. Self-supported.

This means no aid stations and no route markings. You get a route gpx file and you ride it your way. The route file will be emailed to you once you complete your entry.

Do it over the full 60-hour cut-off and stop where you like, or test your mettle and ride it non-stop.

There is no prize money. You get a high five if you finish.

After the race had to start in Groot Brak in January because of the flood damage to the Seven Passes road, we are returning to a start/finish in Sedgefield in October 2022.

The route takes you through some of the best gravel roads in the infamous Garden Route area as well as through the Klein-Karoo towns of Uniondale, Oudsthoorn, and Calitzdorp.

Entries are limited to keep the event as 'uncommercial' as possible, we will only be taking 35 entries this year, so first come first served.

As this is an unsupported race, you as the rider must be certain that you can cover the distance, there will be no vehicles on route to pull you off if you cannot complete the distance. This is a test of perseverance and character, anyone found to have a support vehicle on the route will be immediately disqualified. If you need to bail and someone comes to collect you, you will need to let the Race Medical Team know.

Riders who aren't tackling the route non-stop are free to stay in any hotel or B & B on the route and can resupply at any established shop that is available to the public. The beauty of this style of racing is, you have the fun part of planning your ride according to your goals, whether it be non-stop, over two days, or over the full 60-hour time limit.

It is compulsory to ride with a satellite tracking unit like the Spot Gen3 or Gen4, or the Garmin Inreach, if you don't want to purchase one, you can rent one at
