Laikipia XC

If you’ve ticked the CapeEpic, joBerg2c, Sani and Tankwa Trek off your to-do list and are now looking for something completely different why not check out the Laikipia XC. Spend six days racing about in the Kenyan bush on the foothills of Mount Kenya and the Great Rift Valley. The 500 odd kilometre route is set to feature 10 000m of climbing and loads of unforgettable riding.

The inaugural race is from the 7th to the 12th of July 2014 and you’ll need to take a partner along as it’s a team event. Entries are KES 100 000/US$ 1 200 per person, which works out to R12 500 on the Rand/Kenyan Shilling exchange of KES 1 = R0.125 (17 March 2014).
