Trans Elands MTB Marathon @ The Ferry Hotel Jeffrey’s Bay

Trans Elands MTB Marathon

The 160km “Extreme” MTB marathon with 3000m of elevation gain is one of South Africa’s and certainly the Eastern Cape’s toughest one-day mountain biking events. The event is a true test of a rider’s physical and mental capability, but with adequate preparation it is an achievable challenge. To finish this “bucket list” event within the 12-hour time limit leaves one with a sense of reward and satisfaction which can only be described by a rider who has achieved this feat.  The Trans Elands 160km is the ideal tester for regular MTB marathon riders, perhaps the reason why so many riders have been returning year after year to tackle this event. The 160km event caters for both solo entries and team entries (of two riders per team).

The 60km “Lite” MTB marathon race distance with 1000m of climbing was added in 2017 with great success, and acts as a stepping stone for those who in future years would like to tackle the 160km. The 5-hour time limit allows for riders of varying capability to take part in and complete this 60km event.  Riders of the 60km event have adequate time to stop at the well stocked waterpoints and to take in the breath-taking scenery of the Gamtoos River Valley and Kleinrivier area. The 60km event caters for solo entries only.

The 30km “Mini” MTB marathon with less than 500m of elevation gain, gives the whole family the opportunity to explore the beauty of the the Gamtoos River Valley farmlands by MTB. The 30km event caters for solo entries only.
