After the success we had last year we are looking forward to hosting this event again in 2023 in conjunction with the Nuy Festival.
The Nuy Valley, 13km from Worcester on the Robertson Road (R60), is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful hidden areas in the Western Cape. The friendly citizens of the Valley are looking forward in sharing their festivities with you on Saturday, 13 May 2022, the beauty, our award-winning wines and old world charm of the Nuy Valley. Be assured to experience the exceptional!
The popular Nuy Valley Festival is hosted by Nuy Winery at Nuy on the Hill, Willow Creek Olive Estate, Lions Creek Olive Estate and Leipzig Country House and Winery. There is a wide variety of activities and things to do for the entire family – and especially the young ones. We will be having tons of fun including live music, wine tasting & sales, olive oil tastings, German, and other traditional dishes, Craft beer, a Trail Run, a MTB run and lots more.
Runners entering the run or the ride will get a free ticket to the Nuy Festival valued at R200. For all the info on the festival please go to https://www.nuyvalleyfeast.co.za/
The route for the run and the ride will meander through the spectacular farms that form part of the festival. The longer distances will take you on magnificent gravel roads close to the mountains as well as some single track sections on the existing Nuy Trails. You can be assured of some spectacular views along the route.
We are planning to make some changes to the 30km distance to make it more ridable for the not so fit with lest technical climbs on the single track.
This year we are also adding a 35km Trail Run for the longer distance runners that are looking for a bit more of a challenge with stunning single track and some technical sections on the route.
The start and finish will take place at the Lions Creek Olive Estate where the original very well-known MTB started years ago.
All farms that form part of the festival will make sure that the water points are enjoyable.
