Kingfisher 2015

On the weekend of the 21st of March 2015 the 14th edition of the very popular Kingfisher MTB Marathon will take place. This is the Hoekwil Primary School annual fund-raiser and one of the best MTB rides to do in the Garden Route. Last year there were close to 700 riders and we are preparing for even more! Lots of big prizes and lucky draws to be won.

This year we have made some major changes to the routes and 80% of the routes are now going through forestry roads with few to no traffic. There are challenging climbs, awe-inspiring views, precious indigenous forests and many indigenous birds and forest animals along the route. The race registered with the SA Cycling Federation and all results will be send to SA Seeding to updated and to assist riders that want a preferred seeding in high profile races. If you’re looking for that special race that will test your levels of fitness as well as your sense of adventure, come join us.

There will be 3 MTB distances namely a 19.8km , 45km and the 72km on the Saturday and two Trail runs of 8km and 16km on the Friday.
