Mountain Mania 2013

27 April 2013

Montagu Mountain Mania 2013 was an unqualified success with some 550 competitors lining up for either the Trail Run or the Mountain Bike events. The Duo Challenge on Sunday attracted a further 50 competitors to round off a fantastic weekend of adventure sport.

Many of the competitors elected to spend the weekend, always a huge boon for business.

Locals featured prominently at the event with Montagu speedster Monique Du Plessis winning the women’s 20km trail run and Dirk Oberholser taking the title in the 80km mountain bike race.

The festival attracted a number of brand sponsors which yielded awesome prizes and fantastic goody bags for all. Many Montagu businesses also offered solid support with great spot prizes and weekend getaways on offer.

It was great to see so many local faces at the event, both at the start line and behind the tables – kudos to you all. The weather played along beautifully, creating an awesome environment for competition and a relaxed, laid back atmosphere at the Avalon Springs afterwards.

The Montagu Mountain Reserve also put on a good show, with bountiful Proteas lining the route and autumn vistas second to none from the upper slopes of Cogmanskloof and Bloupunt.

Finally, a huge congratulations to Ilse Esterhuyse and the Klein Karoo Boerevereeniging for again arranging a great event - we tip our hats to each and everyone of you. See you all in 2014!
