Following a highly successful launch event last year which drew thousands of participants from all over Gauteng, Jacaranda FM & Tracker Off the Beat ‘n Track will be back at the Big Red Barn in Irene on 21 April 2018 for a family fun day of mountain biking, kids’ entertainment, picnicking and more music you love.
The event, the biggest of its kind in Gauteng, offers something for any age and riding skill level, with courses ranging from 2km for the kids, and 5km, 15km and 35km races for the serious riders.
After the race, riders and their families, and those who just attend to enjoy the music will be able to set up on the luscious lawns for a picnic and relax to the tune of some of SA’s best live entertainment acts – Goodluck, Die Heuwels Fantasties and Dr. Victor.
Parents with little ones can enjoy the day, knowing that every precaution has been taken to make sure that kids are safe and thoroughly entertained. There will also be more than enough to eat and drink for hungry little, and not-so-little, tummies and vehicles will be well guarded throughout the course of the day.
The entry fee for racers is R80 for the 2km, R120 for the 5km, R150 for the 15km and R200 for the 35km races, and the general admission fee for non-racers is R75 for adults and R50 for kids under 12.
Registration opens at 6 am. The start times for the races are 7:30 am for the 35km, 8 am for the 2km kids’ race, 8:10 am for the 5km race and 8:30 am for the 15km race.
