It’s time to prove your skills at the yearly Mount Elgon Mountainbike Race 2016!!!
Main race is a 33km XC/Enduro style course – it’s a mass start and the first across the finish line wins. From Sipi we climb into Mt. Elgon National Park before descending singletrack through coffee planations and villages. There’s 1000m climbing and 2100m max elevation over two off road loops connected by a little tarmac. Course record 2hr 25min.
Half race: The half race misses the first loop up to the National Park and is easier with less climbing and a lower max elevation. Course record 1hr 21min.
Trained or not… There are a lot of activities for those who don’t want to participate in the race, such as troutfishing in very lush surroundings, climbing, hiking the waterfalls , coffee trips just to mention some…
This year there is an accommodation and food pack for $50 pp. It includes 2 nights camping at Noah’s Ark (across the road from Sipi River Lodge) with 2 breakfasts, one lunch at Sipi River Lodge and a BBQ on the Saturday night.
