2020 will be the 6th year running of the Trans Elands MTB Marathon “SA’s TOUGHEST 100 miler MTB marathon”.
The 160km “Extreme” MTB marathon with 3000m of elevation gain is one of South Africa’s and certainly the Eastern Cape’s toughest one-day mountain biking events. The event is a true test of a rider’s physical and mental capability, but with adequate preparation it is an achievable challenge.
The Trans Elands 160km is the ideal tester for regular MTB marathon riders, perhaps the reason why so many riders have been returning year after year to tackle this event. The 160km event caters for both solo entries and team entries (of two riders per team).
