We also managed to get access to pristine “un-touched” private farm area with beautiful trails that the trail builders have been working and clearing the past 3 months. With the event there will be food stalls, bike wash afterwards, medals, etc.
The trails are so beautiful that we want the trail runners to get a go to it as well. The “Eden Adventures Trail Run” will commence from 2pm the afternoon and there are a short (10km) and longer (21km) option to try out.
For the adrenaline and suffer junkies, there is also the ”Eden X Challenge: 45km MTB & 10km Trail Run” option, which allows you to do both.
