2017-04-19 06:01

MOUNTAIN bike enthusiasts have something to look forward to with the fourth annual Nanaga MTB Race, organised by local events company Free Spirit Adventures, set to take place on April 23.

The race includes four distances to suit all levels of fitness and expertise.

Participants can choose between the 50km, 30km, 15km route for beginners and the 5km fun ride.

The routes cover some stunning private farmland which has been made available specifically for this event. It will take place at the popular Nanaga Farm Stall just outside Port Elizabeth.

The event will also include live entertainment, stalls selling various wares and a play area for the kids.

“We are fortunate to have the support of some amazing sponsors. Clover has joined with us for the first 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,” said Sheena O’Keeffe, Chairman of Free Spirit Adventures.

“Meadow Feeds has been part of the event since its inception in 2014 and is a natural partner in this farming community and they value the opportunity to give back via this charity event,” said O’Keeffe..

The Nanaga MTB Race was initially held as a fundraiser for their chosen beneficiary, namely the Sunshine Coast Charity Trust.

The group of dedicated farmers and their wives are involved in a number of local community projects that help children who live with and are affected by HIV and AIDS.

The Nanaga MTB Race will take place on April 23.

Online entries close on April 19.
