Funky Fynbos Festival - Multisport MTB + Trail Run

THE FUNKY FYNBOS FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE AGAIN THIS YEAR FROM THE 18 – 20 SEPTEMBER !

We are super excited for our second Funky Fynbos Festival. Last year’s festival was a great success and we are very proud to have the continued support of sponsor Rockets, Cape Mohair and African Expressions. The weekend offers the opportunity to celebrate our unique floral heritage with a fynbos display, fynbos talks, fynbos harvesting and demonstrations. There will be local craft stalls and local food merchants, and some great music – this is a country fair and the crafts will be authentic and from the area.

Three major events will attract sporting fanatics and driving enthusiasts.  There will be a MTB race, a trail runas well as challenging 4x4 tracks. More info on the events can be found at www.funkyfynbos.co.za

Each participant will receive a goodie bag, but please take note that there are only limited amount of goodie bags for both the MTB and Trail run, so make sure you enter in advance to avoid disappointment.  Each participant finishing a race will receive a medal, and lucky draw prizes for all participants.
