Nine to Five Release

EIGHT HOURS OF WINTER MOUNTAIN BIKING AND TRAIL RUNNING NEAR STELLENBOSCH

The Nine-to-Five Mountain Bike and Trail Run Relay event will take place from Dirtopia’s home base at Delvera farm on the Sunday, 17 June2018.  The event started in 2008 and creates a social atmosphere at the start/finish. A 10km lap that riders can ride for the full 8 hours (or not) to see how many laps they can do in the day. Trail Runners will have a 5km lap. You may start anytime and stop whenever you want to. 

Solo riders, teams of two and teams of 4 riders can bring support crew to help them win the several categories.

4 RIDER / RUNNER TEAMS

R600 per team (VAT INCLUDED)

2 RIDER / RUNNER TEAMS

R300 per team (VAT INCLUDED)

SOLO RIDERS / RUNNER

R150 per solo rider (VAT INCLUDED)


It is not necessary for team members to ride/ run in sequence and one team member can do as many consecutive laps as they like.  There should however not be more than a four lap difference between the rider / runner with the most laps and the rider / runner with the least number of laps at the end of the event.

The route is easy enough for riders / runners across all levels and fast laps will ensure lots of activity in the transition area. This is a very social event with friends and family supporting the riders and enjoying the facilities at this beautiful winelands venue.

Only pre-entries are taken so get your teams together – categories include:  Open, Mixed and Junior.  A percentage of the entry fee will go towards the Simonsberg Conservancy for permits.


Spectators are welcome to relax on the lawn or enjoy a wine or olive tasting or a leisurely hike on one of Delvera’s superb hiking trails. There is a lot of entertainment on the farm for kids like go-karts, games & soft play toys to name a few.

At the start/finish will be Powerade for the riders. Prizes to be won from sponsors like Giant, Cape Storm, Falke and wine of the Simonsberg farms.

Timing will be done by Amarider Trail Tag that gives live results.  Dirtopia Café will have specials and serve breakfast & lunch all day.
