Kilimanjaro 2 Ngorongoro MTB Stage Race (K2N)

Location: Northern Tanzania, East Africa

Date: Tuesday, 11 June 2019 - Thursday, 20 June 2019


K2N is a 4-day mountain bike race held in the scenic and seldom traveled backcountry of northern Tanzania. Cyclists race from the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro to the highlands of Ngorongoro, through stunning landscapes and extraordinary wildlife areas. The 2019 race will be held 11-14 June and cover 240 kilometers with 4300 total meters climbing. The race course offers varied terrain, spectacular scenery and wildlife viewing, and the opportunity for racers to experience an incredible new culture.

At K2N racers soak in panoramas of Mount Kilimanjaro, Ol Doinyo Lengai (only volcano of its type in the world), and Lake Natron while cycling past giraffe, zebra, and antelope. Did we mention K2N is an all-inclusive experience for six days and nights in Tanzania? In fact, the race is limited to 36 riders to ensure a highly personal and quality adventure. Riders are responsible for getting to Kilimanjaro Airport, but the K2N crew takes it from there, providing all meals and accommodation in spectacular fashion.
