Come and take part in this fun Sprint Adventure Race, a combination of Trail Run/Hike and MTB, and get a taste of what adventure racing is all about.

Date: Saturday 2 November 2019

As is AR (Adventure Racing) tradition, races are usually undertaken by mixed teams of 2, 3 or 4. (Same-gender teams may also enter but only mixed teams qualify for podium positions). The race requires the team to navigate and find check points along the way. All the team members do the whole route together in all of the disciplines (run & mountain bike). The team with most checkpoints and fastest time, within cutoff, wins. This is not an obstacle race, although there may be a special challenge included.

“Horison Light” will be a shorter version of the race, and suitable for families, friends and colleagues who prefer not to be race snakes.

“Horison Dash” is the run/hike only (no mountain biking), but will also require some map-reading!

Race start/finish is as part of the Huis Horison Somerkermis / Horizon House Summer Fête which is a fabulous outing for the whole family and takes place at Huis Horison in Onder Papegaaiberg, Stellenbosch. Come and join us at the end for lunch and a cold beer, and rugby-lovers can watch the game as well!
