Get ready for the Khomas Challenge

13 January 2020 | Sports

Entries for the 2020 Khomas Challenge open on Friday (17 January) and if you want to be part of the gruelling race, then you better act fast!
A maximum of 40 two-person teams are allowed to enter this year’s event taking place from 1 to 3 May. The event, sponsored by BUCO, will see cyclists complete 200km over three days through the Khomas Hochland.
The hilly terrain covers 3 000 meters of climbing and is not for beginners or the faint hearted. Most of the roads are good farm tracks with some single tracks thrown in. There will be water points available at approximately every 10 to 15 kilometres.
Take note that there will be little to no route markings and at least one member of the team should have a GPS.
Entry fees are N$8 000 per team which includes accommodation, food and entertainment.
If you don’t want to miss this year’s event, be sure to get your entry form on Friday.
For more information and the entry form, visit www.raceday.events.
