The Merrell Tsitsikamma race has been around for some time and is a prominent event on our local calendar. It is perfectly situated to draw riders from both the Eastern and Southern Cape.
Offering cyclists not only a test of skill, but also breathtaking views from rugged cliffs high above the raging ocean. This is a professional event for the serious riders, but also a family orientated event where not only mom and dad can participate, but also the little ones who are small in size but big in heart. Three distances: 28km fun ride; 42km half marathon; 70km Tsitsikamma MTB challenge
An 11km Trail Run for those less inclined to want to peddle around.
