ALTERNATIVE PERSONAL CHALLENGE

With a marked out route and installed temporary bridge, we are allowing interested cyclists to complete the route.

Those that want to complete the route but did not enter the event are encouraged to donate to the trail fund set up to develop and promote cycling and running around Stilbaai.

NOTE: There will be no waterpoints or marshalls, festivies or gatherings at the start, finish or anywhere on the route. The ride to remove route markers will start just after 08:00 on Sunday morning after which no markers will remain on the route.

You can also download the GPX file of the route here.

Our STRAVA results leaderboard has also been built to display results for any efforts over the Windpomp Sjerrie Segment between 06:30 on Saturday and 11:30 on Sunday. Category details below.

CATEGORIES

  • OVERALL

The overall weighted time category determines who put in the fastest effort based on actual time, % of max heart rate and the body mass index (BMI) of the participant. Applying these factors to actual times enables us to level the playing field by removing age and physical characteristics that may present a disadvantage.

Up for grabs for the fastest weighted time over the 60km route is a set of First Ascent BIB shorts.
  • KOM/QOM

The second category is the weighted time KOM/QOM. This category takes into account the same factors in calculating weighted time, but does so only over the KOM/QOM segment.

Fastest weighted time for the KOM/QOM category takes home half a sheep.
