19 May is D-day for the Husqvarna Classic Mid-Illovo MTB Challenge & Trail Run

Rugged but fun – that’s the Husqvarna Classic Mid-Illovo MTB Challenge & Trail Run which will kick off from the Mid-Illovo Club on May 19, 2013.

Designed to see the most resilient riders test their skills against what has been called “the best single track of any single day event”, the Husqvarna Classic Mid-Illovo MTB Challenge covers rough terrain in two picturesque game reserves – the Gwahumbe Game & Spa and iNsingizi Game & Spa. This year, riders who mastered the daunting hills and skimmed across the exciting 60 metre long floating bridge can look forward to more innovations – but the track designers aren’t telling yet!

 

While stretching the hard core participants to their limit, the event also offers a more social side. The 18km Gwahumbe Family Experience and the 10km iCycle Insurance Fun Ride give family and friends a special taste of the great outdoors.

 

Runners can venture out on the gruelling 14km iNsingizi trail run or take it a little easier with the 8km trail run.

 

Registration for the Husqvarna Classic Mid-Illovo MTB Challenge & Trail Run begins at 05h30. Water tables are sponsored by GU Energy.

 

Because this event is becoming increasingly popular, the field has been limited to 1 500 riders so get your entries in early. Enter online on www.roag.co.za or contact ROAG on info@roag.co.za / 086 100 ROAG/7624. Entries will close on Wednesday 16 May and late entries will be accepted on the day.

    Awesome race. The 40km has some of the best single track around and few nice surprises with the dam crossing. One tough climb, but the water tables were well stocked.
