Jakhals events will be celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Jakhals MTB Challenge to be held on 1 September 2018 in George. In celebration of this achievement a trail run event will be added for the first time this year. The distances on offer will be 22km, 42km and 62km and the race will form part of the Eden XCM series.
The event will start in Geelhoutboom and will take riders on 3 different routes through Jonkersberg. Most of the routes will consist of gravel service roads, jeep track and some single track that are used by the MTO officials. After returning from Jonkersberg riders will be taken through some farm land and also strawberry tunnels as well as blueberry fields. From the strawberry farm riders will be on a gravel road taking them back to the finish-line at the oval stock car track inside the George Agricultural Show Grounds.
As the Jakhals MTB Challenge will form part of the annual Agricultural Show, all riders will have a free entry to the Show. Family, friends and supporters can join the riders and spend a fun day at the Show. A shuttle will take riders back to the start venue to collect their cars. The 9 kilometre trail run will start and finish at the Show Grounds and will take runners on a scenic route consisting of single and jeep track.
