In numbers, the event has seen continuous growth since it started.

The Terrain

Aside from a variety of crushed rock along the ride, the event offers a variety of mixed gravel, dirt and mud.

Every year we hold a surprise called the Oasis; a technical stretch making or breaking the momentum of participants as they keep pushing through until the finish.
