Details

The Free State’s very own Ultra Marathon MTB event.
Are you brave enough to take on the Ultra (315km) or is the Lite (147km) more your style?

 

The Free State is wild, unexplored and mostly used as a stop over for families traveling to their chosen destination.
The Free State is also Beautiful, friendly and generous.

Take it on with your bike and it becomes an even better adventure. Its not always about the destination, its always about the journey of getting there and the Trans Xhariep is no different.

With the perfect combination of jeep track, farm roads, gravel and tar sections the journey between the Gariep dam and Vanderkloof Dam becomes all the more worth it.

Experience the Free State like never before. Have a look at the beautiful scenery the Xhariep region has on offer and enjoy the fabulous check points with local flavor everywhere you look. Stop and have a swim, wave to a friendly farmer passing by and remember to take a selfie for good measure.

I'm still undecided, now that 36one is back to May I'm leaning towards going though.
