Eselfontein 3 - Day Charity Festival

Location: Eselfontein Farm

Date: Friday, 11 October 2019 - Sunday, 13 October 2019


CSA Sanctioned R30 000 in total - TO BEAT THE TRACK RECORD OF 6:30:37

DAY 1This 40km will be a day\night ride starting at 6pm so the correct lights will be required. We expect the average rider to do the last 20km in the dark. This section of track has been part of our normal night race of the festival over the past few years and has a total elevation gain of 740m. It will be a bunch start but will have plenty of passing opportunities. The results from Day 1 will be used to seed the riders for the next day which will be a 60km race with approx. 30km single track.


DAY 2This will be the ride of your life with a single track combination that will blow your mind and give you an all-over body workout from counter balancing your bike. The route is a combination of our trails that are open throughout the year that will include two famous climbs, “Death Drop” and “Dead Man Walking”. The last 25km will have no big climbs.
