Tame the Monster and conquer the trails 

Adventure seekers, it is time to head outdoors for two days of ultimate fun while enjoying magnificent scenery. 

So best to pencil it in your diary so long … the Fedhealth Magalies Monster MTB Classic on 5 June and the Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run the next day taking place at ATKV Buffelspoort.

Magaliesberg’s most iconic one-day mountain bike race, named after the “Monster”, is a gruelling 6km climb up the northern slope of the Magaliesberg. Besides testing your mettle, the race lets you experience the real beauty of the Magaliesberg Mountains and the amazing rock formations in the area.

The routes offer three distance options – +-16km, +-33km and +-65km, suitable for various fitness levels and ages. All three routes contain the necessary ingredients for a quality mountain bike race … a great setting, spectacular scenery, technically challenging sections with unique single track, and a fantastic atmosphere as riders traverse through a geological area formed over two billion years ago.

Then, Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run on 6 June, offers the perfect balance between challenge and reward. Trail runners will be treated to magnificent views of the Buffelspoort Valley and terrain that is both varied and challenging, making it the perfect way to close off an active weekend. The trail run offers three distance options, +-8km, +-12km and a +-24km, so it’s ideal for families, trail running enthusiasts and competitive trail runners alike.

Stringent Covid-compliant measures will be in place at both events to ensure participant and supporter safety. Besides the fact that both events are held outdoors, protocols like social distancing will be in place, and masks and buffs will be required in start batches and when riders or runners are within two metres of each other.

The Fedhealth Magalies Monster MTB Classic and Platinum Trail Run are a chance to get out and enjoy nature with the whole family. Whether you’re on foot or your bike, you’ll experience spectacular trails complemented by magnificent scenery over the Buffelspoort Valley – plus a vibrant festival atmosphere once you’ve crossed the finish line.

Enter for both events here. There is also a kid’s event on both days. Entries close 31 May.
