Lake Eland Super Classic

26 February 2016


 (You must be logged in to Rate the event - rating form after the article)

The 2011 Lake Eland Super Classic was an astounding success! With record numbers of entrants and people travelling from far and wide to participate and spectate. The organizers are thrilled with the success of the event. 

The Saturday morning events began with the 21km and 12km trail run, which was managed by Liz Karlson. With this event growing each year, there were 114 runners that enjoyed a wonderful course, the runners had an awesome time out there and look forward to the 2012 event. The 5km and 2.5km saw the future sports men and woman of our country battling it out from start to finish. Moms and tots alike had tremendous fun, and all were ushered over the finish line with a medal and custom printed sports water bottle generously sponsored by Coca Cola. 

The Mountain Biking event on Sunday saw a record breaking number of entrants.  From 8am on Sunday morning, the cyclists headed out into the Lake Eland Game reserve for what is undoubtedly a cyclists dream ride. With hills and valleys, bridges and gorges, and a track that is made up of 80% single track, the cyclists crossed the finish line exhausted and invigorated after a hard but satisfying ride!  The first loop going over the Marley Piping systems floating bridge was a thrilling way to start the race, but the surprise at the end having the riders going back over the bridge to cross the finish line proved exciting for most, and a little too much for some! Some gremlins in the timing computer had the racers nervously awaiting their results, but the Elite Timing team soon had everything under control and results were posted just before prizegiving. The 45km pre-registrations all had something extra to smile about, as they crossed the finish line  they were also treated to their Lake Eland Zipline vouchers.

Fantastic single tracks, a pitty about the congestion...maybe widen some areas to make passing possible? where will the pictures be posted.

Please do not ever change anything, this ride is so amazing, one the best on the KZN calendar, certainly the most scenic. Did it last year, and will do it in 2012 for sure.
Just a pity it didn's seem to have been televised by SuperSport.
Keep it up!

Shane
