Klein Karoo Gravel Corridor Challenge
Race Details:

The event starts in the “Karoo” and finishes in Montagu making it a point to point event and not a circular route. I chose the these specific roads to incorporate the beauty of our area and the idea is not to make you suffer on long boring roads in the wind but to thrill you with the beauty of the Klein Karoo

Event Distances

Kortpad/Shortcut 70km: this route option is for those not so fit yet or a first time gravel event rider. The route runs all the way downhill to Montagu with 3 short climbs that will test your lungs. Just a fun way to get into gravel road riding. 451m Ascent and 1233m Descent

Ompad/Detour 100km: adding a 30km through the reserve makes this the ideal distance if you have some fitness in your legs. Not too long just that perfect distance making you finish in that sweet spot. 693m Ascent and 1470m Descent

Langpad/Longway 210km: Race distance for the ultra marathon junkies, those legs that know they can go the whole way. This route has everything you may want on a gravel event, some stiff climbs, twisty downhill on a mountain pass and in between outstretched sections where you can really put the hammer down. Terrain varies and you will not be bored or disappointed. There is lots of wildlife on this loop. 1852m Ascent and 2632m Descent

Route info

This is a point to point route and solely gravel, no sections of tar anywhere It starts in the “Karoo” and heads east into the sunrise traversing the Anysberg Nature Reserve before it turns west again ending in the picturesque town of Montagu. Take note the last 25km is downhill to the finish, it starts with 4km’s down Ouberg (look it up on Strava), be careful not to over cook it, especially when tired or in the dark!
