Redstone MTB & Trail Running Route Descriptions
MTB 60km Route
This will be the same as last year and with the remapping measured at 56.3km.
The route features some breathtaking scenery and visits to different areas of this beautiful valley. We have opted for an easier ride, without the technical and challenging sections of previous years. The route starts out on farm roads towards the majestic Swartberg mountains, traversing its foothills in an easterly direction with a loop back towards Lategansvlei.
From here we enter some of the most scenic jeep track around, and an easy ride takes riders towards Buffelskloof and a loop around the famous Red Stone Hills ends a magic day in the saddle.The focus is now on the scenery and the enjoyment of the best the Klein Karoo can offer! The race will be non technical for all to enjoy!
MTB 43km Route
This will also be the same as last year and with the remapping measured at 42.4km.
This is a nontechnical easy ride on open gravel roads and jeep tracks.

20km Trail run
The 20km event is close to 19km and the run offers something for everyone, an open gravel road to warm the legs, a single track climb towards a view never to be forgotten, a descent into Wildehondekloof and onto Lategansvlei bring runners onto a scenic jeep track back towards Buffelskloof.
The finish boasts a beautifully sculptured old cattle track and the water crossing marks the end to this fabulous trail run - the run is for everyone, if you can manage a half marathon, then this is for you - do not miss it!
