This is no ordinary half-marathon mountain bike event. Get ready to have some fun with the Beast of the East 40-kilometre race. The party will start from Legends MX where you will warm up and get ready for the road ahead towards Rosemary Hill. 

The first “Party Point” AKA “water point” will be at Rosemary Hill where you will be treated with coffee, tea, cakes of the day and much more. Once you and the team are warmed up, you’re heading for the second “Party Point” where we know some might stay till the end. This is the gin and chocolate point.

Once you hit the finish point, we will be waiting with delicious drinks and the party is yet to start. The Protea Fees has so much to offer and you can relax afterwards with performances from Francois van Coke and Dirk van der Westhuizen.  There are loads to do for your spectators if they are not as keen to mountain biking on the day. Bring the kids along for the snake park and a mini petting zoo. 



The first water point will be at Rosemary Hill where you will enjoy the usual water point snacks and drinks, as well as coffee and cake.


The last water point will be in Cullinan where you will dig into gin and chocolates. Now you only have 15km to go!
