EVENTS:  Details here...


On Saturday is the PUFFER 80 Km Trail Run from Cape Point to the Waterfront.  Good luck to all the runners taking part!

The Atlantis Harriers Half Marathon takes place from the Wesfleur Sports Grounds and there is also a 5 Km fun run.


On Sunday is the Dirtopia All Mountain Enduro, a one day stage race on the Helderberg Farm, near Somerset West. The concept is a lot of fun – riders get timed only on certain sections, which make a very social event, especially at the refreshment station where they re-group. The atmosphere is relaxed with no rush anywhere, except when you gun it between check points!

The WPCA Winter League race is a lap race on the Killarney Race Track as part of the Cycle Teknix series.

Enjoy the Week!
