KAV MTB 2018 Route Description

On the first day of the 2018 MTB Challenge a time trial will take place in addition to the 2 stages of the marathon on day 2 and day 3. The time trial will be over a short 10-12 km technical distance and is compulsory for the full marathon riders. The time trial will begin at 3.00pm and the start time interval will be 30 seconds between the riders. We will make the riders start as they are ready to roll, the top-seeded riders will start first. The last rider will be allowed to start at 5.00pm.

There is also an option to take part in the half marathon distance. The route is well marked with brown and white mountain bike signs on metal posts and white chalk marks on the track. There will also be 4 marshal and water points en-route where you can quench your thirst. See the files with the route description, route map and route profile maps for more information. View the information flyer with more information on the race and the mountain bike tract.

The starting time for both the marathon and half marathon will be at 7.30 am every morning.
