Redhub is hosting a 6 in 1 RACE DAY ON 13 AUGUST 2017 . It will consists of a MTB race , and at the same time a Duathlon for Road and MTB Duathletes. In addition, we are keen to have a pure running option for Trail Runners. The Ideal opportunity for Triathletes and runners to stay in race shape and for Mountain Bikers to ride a fun , but also competitive race over 25 or 50 kilometres of pristine Cradle Moon tracks.
DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND a MTB race and a Trail Run will form part of this EVENT!!!
The venue is Cradle Moon lake Side Game Lodge (previously known as Heia Safari Ranch) in the cradle of human kind. The venue is a mere 30 minutes’ drive from most areas in Johannesburg and Pretoria. The venue is tranquil, quiet and offer a bush experience complete with viewing game close up, a beautiful lake and facilities for the whole family.
The date is 13 August 2017, a run start for duathletes, the MTB race and Trail Run will start at the same time.
After a 4km run for duathletes , the cycle leg will again be split where roadies will complete a 32km loop around the cradle and MTB riders will ride a challenging 25 km route inside the venue boundaries. The final 6 km run will again bring the disciplines together. The run is not too technical but tough and scenic. Specialist trail running shoes are not essential. This format gives the roadies a chance to experience a run, quite different from the typical road event.
The MTB race will have a 25 km or 50km option and the trail run will have a 6km or 11km option.
The goal is to have a day out for the family, push hard and test you form! Or use it as a training event. Or just have fun and experience the unique flavour of this format and environment.
