The nature of the route is such that you must come prepared for “duwweltjies”, the infamous 3-pronged thorn of the Sandveld.
This specifically applies to the last 38km so please ensure your tires are topped up with sealant.
The finish is at the Malkoppan Caravan Park which is approximately 5km south of Lambert’s Bay and is located opposite the world famous Muisbosskerm Restaurant.
The finish will coincide with the month end Farmers' market at the park which guarantees entertainment for the whole family.
Please join us after the event for an evening of food and music at Muisbosskerm.
Information regarding the booking of the meals is available on our website – Event Checklist.
A special goodie bag will be given to the first 300 entrants.
