"It's time again to don yer kilts, get on yer gear and enter the annual Howick Highlander MTB and Trail Run events," said organisers of the annual event.
It all takes place on Sunday 25 August 2013 at the Karkloof Farmers' Market just outside Howick. The event, which is hosted by the 1st Howick Cubs and Scouts, is focused on being an affordable family event.
"You will be able to enjoy sociable routes along dirt roads and jeep tracks in the Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve and Everdon Estate – places you cannot normally access. After dodging zebra and antelope you will pass some of the most breathtaking views around," said organisers.
Registration opens at 06:00. Trail runs will start from 07:00 and cover 20km, 10km and 5km distances. MTB rides will start from 08:30 and cover 40km, 20km, 10km and 2km distances.
"Don't miss the EXTREME 20km MTB route for the not so faint-hearted, which will follow the 20km trail run route down the Umngeni Valley."
