Where do I enter?

Entries are available on Entry Ninja here – ENTER NOW

Can I substitute my entry and when is the cut-off?

Yes, you can substitute your entry, and this can only be done until the 31st of March 2021.

Mountain bike or gravel bike?

The route has loads of gravel bike sections where the ride will be smooth sailing, although there is a massive climb on the Beast race and some downhill sections where a mountain bike will be more advantageous. It is really personal choice, we would suggest wider tyres on a gravel bike. The routes are so exclusive and we’re ensuring riders will have an amazing experience on the roads less travelled. 

Can I get a refund?

Unfortunately not, we have a no-refund policy. You can, however, try and sell or substitute your entry.

Is there a cut-off time for the race?

The cut-off race pace for the events are as follows:

Beast – 12km/h 
Protea – 10km/h

We will have some sweeps behind on bicycles to keep the tempo and make sure all of you finish in time.

Do I need a GPS device?

This is not necessary. The routes will be well marked

Is there a pre-registration?

Yes, pre-registration is on the Friday from 10h00 – 18h00 at the following locations:
