MTB Challenge & Trail Run

The Husqvarna Classic Mid-Illovo MTB Challenge & Trail Run has entrenched itself as a firm favourite on the mountain biking and trail running calendar with this year’s event scheduled to take place on Sunday, 28 April 2019. The MTB route boasts what some riders have called “the best single track of any single day event”, traversing picturesque game reserve – the Gwahumbe Game & Spa.

Perfect as a training ride for our more energetic riders, we have the 60km Husqvarna Classic X-treme MTB race with a maximum elevation of 1300m! If tackling the tough but thrilling 60km X-treme or 40km Safire MTB Classic is too daunting, the event also offers the more social 18km Gwahumbe Family Experience
and the 10km Fun Ride (U12s ride FREE!).

Runners can tackle the gruelling 16km Farmers’ Agri-Care trail run, or the gentler Gwahumbe 9km trail run.

BREAKING NEWS:  The start & the finish of the Husqvarna Classic will now take place at Gwahumbe.

Families can relax in the beautiful Gwahumbe gardens after the race and enjoy our 
Gin Bar and some great Mid-Illovo hospitality.

PLUS…..First 600 entrants will receive a large microfibre quick-dry towel from Bobums.  Compact and perfect to pack for any adventure.  Don’t miss out!


The Opportunity to Give Back

Every entrant into the Husqvarna Classic 2019 has the opportunity to give back and help a child in the Eston community.  Purchase an Uzwelo School Bag with a built-in poncho to protect the child and their belongings from the elements.  Cost:  R150.
