Registration for 2020 TRANS ELANDS MTB MARATHON


2020 will be the 6th year running of the Trans Elands MTB Marathon “SA’s TOUGHEST 100 miler MTB marathon”.
In 2019 we celebrated our 5th anniversary, with 6 riders awarded the “Lex’s Big 5” trophy and embroided shirt for having completed all 5 our Trans Elands “extreme” events to date.

The race was founded by Lex Holmes, who sadly passed away on 31 December 2016.  The great turnout of riders for the first five years of our event is evidence of firstly the influence that Lex has had over many years in mountain biking circles throughout the Eastern Cape and secondly the dedication and commitment of the new organising team to continue with and grow Lex’s legacy.

The 160km MTB marathon with 3000m of climbing, can be extremely tough to finish for those who haven’t put in the hard training miles, however it is very rewarding and satisfying to finish this “bucket list” event within the 12 hour cut-off time.

Riders also have a choice of two shorter race distances, the 60km Lite which acts as a stepping stone for those who in future years would like to tackle the 160km, as well as the 30km Mini family friendly event.

See our website for more details.

The minimum age limit for the 30km Mini is 13.
The minimum age limit for the 60km Lite is 15.
The minimum age limit for the 160km Extreme is 19.
