Route Description
The Marathon and Half Marathon consists of a 25km lap that will be done twice for the Marathon. The route is a mixture of dirt roads, jeep tracks and flowing singletrack. The first 7km is relatively flat with beautiful views of the dam and the Magalies mountains. After a small steep climb, riders are rewarded with a scenic jeep-track descent along the Crocodile river. After the waterpoint at 13km a tough steep climb of approx 2km follows. The downhill back to the estate is scary and rocky but is followed by a scenic, fast-flowing singletrack. After a bit more climbing riders are once again rewarded with views across the dam and Magalies mountains. The last 5km consists mainly of jeeptracks with some rough terrain to contend with. (Difficulty Rating 8/10)

The 10km Fun Ride is a 1 lap route, consisting mainly dirt roads and jeeptracks with limited climbing and technical sections. The route was designed to provide a scenic, enjoyable day for novice and younger riders. (Difficulty Rating 3/10)

The 4km Kiddies Race is a 2 lap route and consist of an easy, safe jeeptrack within the Estate. Parents are welcome to join their kiddies free of charge (Difficulty Rating 2/10)
