Eselfontein MTB Festival
Come and take on a vintage steam train – with your relay team or on your own. The train was beaten in 2017! Let’s see if the people can beat her again! Start at Wellington Station and finish in Ceres (at the amazing Ceres Golf and Eco Estate). Relay teams to consist of 3 cyclists and 3 runners – all legs are over beautiful off-road terrain. So, great for trail runners and mtb enthusiasts, even for the not-so-experienced, as the route is not highly technical. Bring the entire family to celebrate afterward you’ve completed this exciting challenge. There will be live music, great food, and a supervised kiddies village. A wonderful team-building event or a unique and tough challenge for the solo participants. If you are interested in buying supporter tickets to take the train, contact the Ceres Rail Company at www.ceresrail.co.za.
