The Hills Challenge is definitely one of the new up and coming events to look out for. The Hills Challenge takes place on 21 October at Doringlaagte Holiday resort in the beautiful town Montagu in the Little Karoo.
This is an great family event with lots of activities for young and old, there are 4 mountainbike routes on offer. The 80km is one that will take you to 4 well known hills in that area, like Bobbejaanbult and Ouberg.
This is definitely not one to take lightly. The 48km is also a good and challenging route for the more fit rider, the 26km for the less fit and upcoming riders, and then the 12km ride is for the children.
The trailrun routes are the 15km that will take you over Tafelkop and it is definitely for the more fit and experience runners, and the 8km is also tough, but not that extreme. There are more than enough waterpoints on the route, and also sweepers and medics at the venue and on the route. “We also have a helicopter on standby this year, that can be use for medical assistance or recovery.” The day will come to an end with a 5km colourrun that the whole family can participate in and it definitely is lots of fun.
