Route Description:
Difficulty Rating: 0. Route Type: Point-to-point

This is a race of contrasts, first treating you to the magnificent expanse of the Karoo and then the luxuriant lushness of the Knysna Forest. The early stretches prove challenging as you push up the Prince Alfred Pass but it is the stunning views that will bring you back here, guaranteed. Once over the notorious Buffelsnek, the cool forests beckon and Knysna awaits.

Karoo to Coast 96 km

The race will be staged for the 19th time in 2018. The event is organised by the Lions Clubs of both Knysna and Uniondale, funds raised go to the Sightfirst project. This project has enabled almost 1,000 blind or near-blind underprivileged patients to undergo eye operations. Strong emphasis is placed on the development of local participation.
