Entries are open for the 4th annual Fedhealth MTB Challenge that will take place at the picturesque Boschendal Wine Estate (The Retreat) on Saturday, 15 and Sunday, 16 September 2018.
“We are excited to host the Fedhealth MTB Challenge at the magnificent Boschendal Wine Estate for the second consecutive year,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports. “This year, however, the Festival Village will be hosted on The Retreat side of the picturesque estate. Mountain bikers of all ages and skill sets can look forward to spectacular, well-designed mountain bike tracks and gorgeous scenery that are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. With plenty of mountain biking challenges and heaps of family fun on the cards, the Fedhealth MTB Challenge is a not-to-be-missed event on the 2018 fitness and social calendar.”
Jeremy Yatt, Fedhealth Principal Officer, says: “As a medical scheme that puts family at the heart of all our activities, we cannot wait for the family-friendly Fedhealth MTB Challenge in September. We hope Mom, Dad and the kids will come show off their mountain biking skills in the various races, and enjoy quality family time afterwards in a truly beautiful setting. Once again, we’re giving free entry to all Fedhealth members and their families – which will hopefully inspire more members to enter!”
The MTB action will kick off with the Fedhealth Kids MTB Events on the Saturday. Junior MTB enthusiasts between 0 – 13 years of age can choose between a 500m, 1.5km and 5km adventure.
