The #RidetheHunt Challenge

#RidetheHunt is a 5 stage virtual challenge taking place between May and September 2019, where participants are required to complete certain actions or tasks and cycle a minimum distance to progress to the next stage. Participant teams accumulate points during the stages with the overall winner the team with the highest number of points at 00:00 on 30 September 2019.

The Challenges

In celebration of 51 years as South Africa’s leading bespoke jeweller, Uwe Koetter presents the RISE challenge.

Achieve the greatest weighted ascent between June and November 2019 and take away bragging rights as well as your share of R51 000 in prizes.


Position Prize Value
First Place R30 000
Second Place R15 000
Third Place R6 000


The Winning Formula

Weighted ascent takes into account the relative effort over the challenge period compared to the same period one year earlier. Simply, it is your achievement X by your effort.

The Formula:

Ascent in meters X (Personal Bests (June – November 2019) / Personal Bests (June – November 2018)) = Weighted Ascent


12 000 meters x (15 PBs / 25PBs) = 7200 meters weighted ascent.

12 000 meters (25 PBs / 15 PBs) = 20 000 meters weighted ascent.

To ensure fairness across the board, we have chosen to limited the maximum multiplier to 2.

For Stage 2, we’re going for quality over quantity. Here’s your challenge:

> Complete the Wild Boar Trail on Val du Charron to progress to Stage 3.

> Tag @wildboartrails, @valducharronwines, @uwekoetterjewellers on Facebook and val-du-charron-wine-leisure-estate and @uwe_koetter on Instagram. Remember the tags – #uwekoetter #stage2 and #ridethehunt
