Duo Challenge

The Old Mutual Stellenbosch University Sport Performance Institute (SUSPI) Duo Challenge supported by BMT bike shop takes place on Sunday 25 November.

The Duo Challenge is a 24km mountain bike race (two laps of 12.5km) and a 10km trail run (two laps of 5km) in which individuals or teams can participate by either doing both the cycle and the run, or one aspect of the challenge.

The technical yet enjoyable route starts on the football field behind the Coetzenburg athletic stadium and heads into the Kabouterbos, with amazing single sections and good climbs before ending back at the football field.

There is also a Half Duo – 12km mountain bike race and 5km trail run – for 15-19 year olds and a Kids Duo – 1km mountain bike race and 400m run – for under 15s. The full Duo kicks off at 8.30am, the half at 9am and the kids at 10am.
