The event takes in the beauty of the natural surrounds as the route, which in part runs parallel to the beautiful Illovo River, is accompanied by incredible natural sights including two fish eagles that nest in a tree closeby, other bird as well as wildlife.

The race will be followed by prize-giving, with revised prizes for the first three entrants in the men’s and women’s open category and first prize for junior men and women.

To be a series winner, competitors will have to have completed all three races. Should a different competitor have won each event, the series winner will be decided from the best average time posted across all three races. A series winner prizes will also be awarded on the night.

The organisers have received support from sponsors Hypersure and Umsinsi Adventures The Toti Brewing Company.
