PIETERMARITZBURG’S biggest cycling club, the Burg Wheelers, are proud to once again host their annual MTB race, with the support of their generous sponsor: Compendium.

This year’s Compendium MTB Race will be held on July 14 at one of South Africa’s finest MTB venues — the Karkloof Country Club — which has some of the top-rated trails in South Africa.

To add some flare, there will be some changes to the track following the recent Karkloof SAPPI race. The 2019 Compendium MTB Race will be taking you on an extra 5km on the normal 40km and 20km routes — and will introduce some minor changes to the 10km route — to make this a unique and exclusive event. So, don’t miss your chance and enter now at!

Enter four or more entrants on the Roag website to qualify for the 20% family discount, making this one of the most affordable family day outs.

Pre-entries close on July 10. Entries will be accepted at registration but at an additional fee.

Prize money of R15 000 plus a number of valuable Lucky Draw prizes will be on offer and all finishers will receive a Compendium water bottle and a bottle of aQuellé water.

Registration will be held at the Karkloof Country Club on race day from 6.45 am until 8.45 am.


45km — 8 am

25km — 8.30 am

10km — 9 am.
