103Km Route

The current route has been in place since 2006, making this year’s event the 13th edition on this popular route. Elevation gain is about 620m, on rolling hills with the similar chances of crosswinds on parts of the course.

Also a good race for those wanting to prepare for the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge, as it takes place 3 weeks before the Cycle Challenge.
