Kingfisher MTB & Trailrun 2019 Challenge

On 16 March 2019 the 18th edition of the very popular Kingfisher MTB Marathon and Trail Run will take place.

After the success of the move to the Island Lake venue, we have decided to make no changes to the START/FINISH venue and routes for 2019!

The MTB race is registered with the SA Cycling Federation and all results will be send to SA Seeding to be updated and to assist riders who wants 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 4 MTB distances namely a 18km (Fun Ride), 30km, 60km and the 80km on the Saturday and two Trail runs of 8km and 12km also on the Saturday.

Please note that there is a Reduced SANparks access fee of R27/person payable to enter the SANParks Island Lake Venue and thus will be part of the online entry fee as well.
