THE RUN


This is a two day stage race that takes you on untouched routes through the lush greenery of Umkomaas. Each day the race starts and ends at the Richmond Country Club.




Day One - Distance: 60 kilometres. The opening stretch of the first day takes you onto plantation roads, allowing the field to spread. The course descends steeply into the upper reaches of the Nkobeni Valley, a tributary of the mighty Umkomaas. The descent continues through sugar cane fields and alongside the Nkobeni River. Now comes the big climb, three kilometres of hard work. It takes you on jeep track through acacia woodland and continues on an undulating contour up and out of the valley. Depending on how lucky you are you have a chance of bumping into zebra, blue wildebeest, nyala or the ever elusive bushbuck, a few of the many species found in the Umkomaas Valley.


Day Two - Distance: 45 kilometres. The second day takes you first on a small tour through the forests before entering into single track which follows the banks of the Illovo River. A jeep track takes you to the highest point where there are magnificent views of the surrounding farmlands and in the distance, the Umkomaas Valley.
