Recent course recon came up with a few options on the MTB.
The long course will be a 3 lap course, the short 2.
You might be pleased to hear a 150m vertical hike-a-bike was voted ‘out’ of this year’s course, 2 votes to 1.
See map below…
More clearing of dead and fallen branches from an old section of the run course was carried out yesterday, and you almost can’t get lost now.
We did upon retracing our steps along the ‘cleared’ track.
You may like to re-think shin protection, long socks and practice lifting your feet well off the ground.
This is only for a 1km fun section of the course, so no need to pack a machette.
Race T-shirts & Cycles jerseys
They have been made and are on their way.
If you haven’t entered or would like an additional shirt or cycle top, get in quick to avoid missing out.
Get training, get your friends involved and see you at the 2018 Nanga Challenge soon.
