This year we are scheduling our MTB and Trail runs on that weekend as well and intend using a common race village not far from the finish of the third day of the canoe race ( 6km up the only road out) This format will be similar to the Drak Challenge in Underberg where the races are run independently but make use of a common race village and marquee for festivities and entertainment. We will have prize giving and lucky draws on the Saturday Night.
More news soon.
