Q4 Platberg MTB Race
Platberg Mountain and Harrismith is right in the middle from Johannesburg, Durban and Bloemfontein so that makes this race the perfect getaway for the weekend to enjoy the beautiful view of the Drakensberg mountain and at some points in the distance, Sterkfontein dam
This is a weekend filled with MTB and Trail running in Harrismith.
Registration from Friday 18 August 2017
Saturday 19 August 2017 we will be hosting the Q4 Platberg Classic MTB race 10km, 25km,45km and the 60km race.
Sunday 20 August 2017 we host the trail runners for a nice trail run two different distances, we will confirm the distances and maps ASAP.
MTB: We are the host for the Free State Marathon series leg two in a series of four races to take place over the Free State.
The 60km route will have it fair share of climbing and then the reward of going down the very nice and flowing single track with some of the trails crossing streams and over bridges, you will get some awesome views of the Drakensberg, Sterkfontein dam and even Harrismith you will also pass near an old blockhouse while doing the race.
The 45km route is still a thought one and will test your training thru the winter but will give you just as much enjoyment as the 60km race. You might get to see some of the wildlife we have in the mountain but the trails will not disappoint you. You will get to climb to the foot of the mountain and decent back down again and every time it is with a view of what we have to see in the mountain.
The 25km race will be fun and if you did a MTB race before this one you will have fun with it there is a few climbs but as for the single tracks that follow and the crossing over and thru some water streams you will enjoy the day out on the bike and love the scenery.
The 10km race will be for the youngsters to enjoy and will be with little technical terrain with some single track to have fun and to enjoy.
The 60km and the 45km will test your climbing ability that you can be guaranteed of!!
The 10km and 25km will have you coming back for more and you would want to do it again!!
