We are back, for a second time in 2016 in our new November (6th) slot on the calendar. Perfectly timed as the final warm up race before the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge – one week before the MTB Challenge, and two weeks before the Cycle Challenge. The event date may have changed but the road race remains the same as the February event, i.e. the organisers, sponsors, host venue and route remain the same. It will be the 33rd edition of this popular National Classic.
Online Entries & Timing
Along with the change in date, comes a change in service providers for Online Entries and individual event timing. We have decided to return to Cycle Events for the online entries, and will be using Racetec as official timing – which means cyclists can use this event as a seeding event for many other cycle races.
We have also added a MTB event taking place on Saturday, 05 November – the day before the road race. This means a weekend of cycling events at Carnival City. We are planning a 60Km (the race) and 30Km (fun ride) for the cyclists preparing for the Telkom 947 MTB Challenge, as well as a 10Km (family friendly) and a 5Km (Kiddies U12 only) event.

During the online entry process for the Road event, you will be given the option to add one of the MTB events to your basket – 30Km & 60Km only. This can be added on the page called “merchandise”, which is the last step before checkout.
If you choose to enter both, you will qualify for a R40 discount.
