EVENT INFORMATION: 
 
THE RACE: 
 
This year we will be hosting our first PSG Absolute Hilton MTB Challenge. 
 
The Absolute Motion Team has teamed up with PSG to host one of the most picturesque mountain bike races in KZN. The race will feature fun and challenging single-track across 3  distances, 10km, 20km and 40km.
 
There will be goodie bags for the first 200 entries.
 
THE TRAILS: 
 
With varied terrain through the Hilton College Forests, guaranteeing a fun ride for Mountain Bikers of all ages and abilities. 
 
This race is the perfect opportunity to explore new, exciting trails. We have been hard at work developing trails that will be exciting to ride challenging enough to keep you entertained.
 
THE STRAVA SEGMENTS
 
A new feature of our race that we have developed with Elite timing is the option to race segments.  There are three Strava Segment prizes up for grabs. 
 
The actual timed segments will be a secret up until race day and all riders will have to race them blind. We will clearly mark the start and finish of a segment during the race, so that you can put the hammer down at the right points. 
 
We hope that some of our skilled riders will be able to take on the race leaders over these shorter parts of the race!!

PRIZES & PRIZE MONEY: 
 
In association with PSG Wealth we will be bringing the prize money in at
R30, 000, which is significant for a 40km race. 
 
Prize money will be available for segment winners, overall race winners and age category winners across the 3 races. 
 
There will also be an Hilton College Old Boys award and trophy.

FOOD & BEVERAGES: 
 
Food and coffee stalls will be open throughout the day
 
YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS OUT ON THIS RACE!!

Howick's favourite family MTB and Trail-Run is around the corner and this year, featuring a complete facelift with a new look, new venue and best-of-all... new and improved routes, including a kiddies loop!

We encourage riders and runners to take their time on route; stop to take lots of pics and chat up a storm with friends old and new. It's not a race!

The 35km MTB route will have cyclists riding quite literally on the edge with the 20km route offering the same spectacular views, but on much gentler contours. The 10km is a great ride for beginners and the kiddies forest loop is not to be missed!

EVENT INFORMATION: 
 
 
2017 has brought with it an exciting change to one of South Africa's oldest cycling events, the Howick Highlander; the venue has moved to WESSA's Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve and with it, all the routes have changed...for the better.  If you have ridden the 35km route before and ever wondered what it would be like in reverse, don't miss this years event.  Click here for more route information on the mountain-bike and trail-run routes.
 
The Howick Highlander is the annual fundraising event for the 1st Howick Cub and Scout Group and is designed to be a good day's fun for the whole family. This year will feature the all-new kiddies loop and there will be plenty of food and entertainment at the race village.
 
Although sanctioned by the KZN MTB Commission and Cycling SA, the Howick Highlander is not meant to be raced!  Look up and enjoy the view, take your time and savor a day out in a little piece of our African bushveld paradise.
 
We look forward to seeing you there!
 

ROUTE INFORMATION: 

35 km MTB
If you have ridden the 35km MTB route before and wondered what it would be like in reverse, now is your chance to find out...and its GREAT!  This route is not one for the faint of heart; the ride back from Everdon Estate and the look-out across to the valley to Albert Falls, takes you along the valley escarpment of Dwarfs Dawdle before dropping you onto Black Eagle Trail (download PDF maps below). 
 
20 km MTB
This route cuts out the adrenaline pumping sections of the 35km route to give you the same views and riding experience through a nature reserve.
 
10 km MTB
This route is ideal for newbies consisting mainly of district road riding.
 

T-SHIRTS: 

Event t-shirts are available for sale and can be purchased when entering under Event Purchases. Please see the below description and image of the shirts. 
 

DESCRIPTION:

The locally sourced Howick Highlander shirts are manufactured from 100% carded cotton.  Made with 180g ‘heavyweight’ specifications, they are designed with durability in mind.  
 
The sleeves are branded with the Scouts and Howick Highlander logos and the front of the shirt bears the motif for this year’s event: the heartbeat wave inscribed with the words ‘DON’T QUIT’.             
 
 

KIDS ENTERTAINMENT:  

A Kiddies MTB Loop & Trail Loop is available on the day. There is a R20 entry fee which allows the kids to do as many MTB or Trail loops as they would like during the course of the event. 
 

TIMING: 

This event is not intended to be a race.  If you would like to know your finishing time - bring a watch!  
 

MEDALS: 

Medals will be awarded to all participants.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION: 
 
The 60km Illovo Marathon route remains “hard work” for the first 20km up until the 1stWaterpointat Nsingizi. The single track will provide some splendid riding through the tracks and trails for the following 20km. The final kilometres will be fast as you navigate sugar cane roads back to the Finish at the Club
 
The 40km aQuelle Half Marathon route follows the longer race for the first 12km, after which it splits off and dives down into a natural krantz following cattle and forest tracks. Perhaps the waterfall will be flowing this year!? The route remains fast and ride able for all forms of fitness, and proves to be a very popular adventure through the well manicured cane and timber farms of the Eston district.
 
The STIHL Tala Family Ride remains extremely popular for families and junior riders alike, and entries fill up very fast for this event. It is the only time in the year that Tala kindly open up their reserve for mountain biking and excellent game sightings are virtually guaranteed, all from the seat of your MTB!
 
The Omnia Kids Ride (2 x 5km loops) promises to be huge fun and the Eston Primary School look forward to hosting all budding MTB’ riders on their course around the club.
