This year sees the staging of the fifth annual Nanaga MTB Race, organised by local events company Free Spirit Adventures. The race will be held on 22 April 2018 and includes 4 distances to suit all levels of fitness and expertise. Choose from 50km, 30km, the 15km route for beginners, and the 5km fun ride. The routes cover some stunning private farmland which has been made available specially for this event.
The race has grown significantly over the years, with over 700 riders entering the race in 2017, making it one of the biggest mountain bike events in the Eastern Cape. This rise in popularity is largely due to the feedback from riders about the stunning routes, with magnificent views and some fast-flowing single track sections.
The race takes place at the popular Nanaga Farm Stall just outside Port Elizabeth. There will be live entertainment, stalls, a kiddies play area, and refreshments on sale. This is a family event, so bring the kids!
We are fortunate to have the support of some amazing sponsors. Meadow Feeds has been part of the event since its inception in 2014.Meadow Feeds is a natural partner in this farming community and they value the opportunity to give back via this charity event. Clover has joined with us for the second time this year and we are thrilled to partner with them. The race is held on local dairy farms, so Clover is a good fit for this event.
The Nanaga MTB Race is an event that likes to give back. The race initially came about specifically as a fundraiser for our beneficiary: the Sunshine Coast Charity Trust. This group of dedicated farmers and their wives are involved in a number of local community projects to help children living with and affected by HIV and AIDS and it is a privilege to support them.
