The start and finish will be at the President Square, Clarens. The route will take teams from Clarens to Bethlehem to follow the R26 before turning right onto the undulating R714 towards Warden and Eenzaamheid. Thereafter it’s a right turn onto the R57 towards Kestell before the last stretch on the R712 which includes a tough hilly section through the Golden Gate national park. The route is generally undulating, with some steep and tough hills in the last 40 km. This is not a ride for beginners.
- Start time: 06h30
- Cut-off at the finish line: 16h30
Teams will start with 30 second intervals and have up to 9 hours in which to complete the event. A cut-off will be implemented at the Supporter Zone in Kestell (107 km). Additional cut-offs may also be implemented en route. Your team’s time will ‘keep ticking’ while they refuel at the Supporter Zone and there will be no “time-out” period.
Teams will be seeded prior to the event, with the start times published on the website prior to the event.
It is not an easy ride and teams are encouraged to put in the training miles, taking into consideration the average altitude of roughly 1900m and elevation gain of over 2200m for the event.
