This year will be the 15th edition of the Kingfisher Challenge which makes it one of the oldest MTB events in the Garden Route.
18-19 March 2016
Route & Event
As usual, we made small route changes on the suggestions received from last years’ participants and believe we have it spot-on for this year. Routes and profile maps are available on www.trisport.co.za
This event remains the main fund-raiser for the Hoekwil Primary School and the “Beer Garden” will make its return again for the thirsty on the day.
The race is not limited but the organisers will appreciate pre-entry as it will make administration easier on the day. An administration fee will be charged on race day entries.
The MTB races are also one of the qualifiers for Eden XCM Colours.
