Starts in town and follows jeep tracks and single tracks to the foot of Platberg Mountain, where a steep, slippery, technical ascent up One Man’s Pass awaits.The route then winds along the top of the mountain, up until the cross where the 15km and 30km route split. The 15km route heads down the Zig-zag Pass, back to the foot of the mountain (jelly legs are guaranteed!) and crosses the plains back toward the starting point. The 30km route heads further along the top of Platberg Mountain to Gibson Dam, and then it follows the stream down to Donkey Pass and the quad-breaking cement jeep track down to the forestry. Single and jeep track winds through the forestry toward the plains, where participants then join the 15km route, back into town to finish at the primary school.

Medals are awarded to all finishers under 3:30, and prizes to category winners.
