Trans Elands MTB Marathon 2022

General Description:

The Trans Elands 160km “extreme” was founded by Lex Holmes, who sadly passed away on 31 December 2016.  The great turnout of riders at the Trans Elands 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 which acts as a stepping stone for those who in future years would like to tackle the 160km, as well as the 25km family friendly event.
