20 January – Dirtopia Ride and Run @Delvera

 

Harvest time shows beautiful green vineyards and anyone can try this fun duathlon style event. The routes are not too hard, but you can still challenge yourself and each other.

 

The morning will start with the ride which consists of two 10km loops for 20km or one loop for the 10km, you then enter the transition zone and grab your running gear for the 7.5km. You can do it in teams (one rides and other runs). If you don’t ride there is a 10km trail run only discipline that you can do.

 

From the start, participants will follow the routes through vineyards to neighbouring farms and hit singletrack for lots of mountain bike fun.  There will be a refreshment station at the transition point before you start your run, and a self-help waterpoint on the route.  The run will bring you some trails to with wineland views to remember!

 

Coffee will be ready from early morning and breakfast snack. Medal to all finishers and prize giving with lucky draw.

 

Dirtopia Café will be open all day for meals, drinks and lots of kids’ play areas.
