The series consists of two events, Sunday the 21st December 2014 and Sunday 28th December 2014.
Events will take place at Garden Route Trail Park, Barrington, nestled at the very foot of the Outeniqua Mountains and the Karatara River Gorge, midway between George and Knysna. In the heart of the Garden Route. Bring the whole family to experience the magic. Trails, kiddies entertainment and monster pump track.
Our carefully designed routes have been laid out to provide participants of all levels with a year’s supply of adrenalin, excitement, scenery and amazing views.
Our hand built singletrack in the infamous farmer tradition snakes its way through ancient forests where wooded giants stand guard as you flow through streams, shady fern glades and forest tunnels. Flowing turns, burms, rollers and river crossings . For the runners there is flowing forest trail and the chance to get up close and personal with the upper reaches of the Karatara River. Massive rock pools, waterfalls and boulders. Water points will be an experience not to be missed. With farmer hospitality, homemade treats and good humour to refresh tired legs.
10km Trail Run
Fun and achievable for runners of all levels. With enough excitement and scenery to leave the most seasoned trail runner on a high. A little bit of farm road and then 90% singletrack, forest tunnel and river bed. Two water points
13km Trail Run
Aimed at the more serious trail runners and novices looking for a challenge. A little bit of farm road and then 95% singletrack, forest tunnel, river gorge boulders and slick rock. Two water points.
10km Trail Ride
Have fun in a safe environment. Get the kids together and enjoy the outdoors on two wheels. Gravel roads and singletrack built specifically for kids and beginners.
20km Trail Ride
A different format this year. We have taken out all the jeep track and gravel road and replaced it with singletrack. Dont let the distance fool you this is the equivalent of a 40km ride. We start with a little hill and then it is straight into the Garden Route Trail Park for the most fun you can have on a bike. The trails are fast and flowing, we advise taking it easy and enjoying the ride. One water point
30km Trail Ride
A different format this year. We have taken out all the jeep track and gravel road and replaced it with singletrack. Dont let the distance fool you this is the equivalent of a 55km ride. We start with a little hill and then it is straight into the Garden Route Trail Park. One water point.
Duo: 13km Trail Run + 30km Trail Ride
Great combination of the 30km bike and 12km trail run. You need to be fit to do this one.
