About

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, 22 April 2018. 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.
