Adventure awaits


Tulbagh 24h Adventure Race


Tulbagh is the 4th oldest town in South Africa and you will experience some of the rich history of this quaint town throughout the race. Entries close at midday on Friday 22 February 2019.

The starting venue for our race will be the Vogelvlei Yacht Club. There is a limited amount of campsites available at R50 per person per night. Please BOOK HERE to reserve your campsite. Due to an incredibly dry year last year, there is not much grass left to camp on but you will be right next to the action and a cold beer and hot shower will make it the best spot to be after the race. There are roadworks on the R46 between Wellington and Tulbagh, so add 20 odd minutes to your travel time. Find the location of the start venue HERE.

Silwerfontein is alternative accommodation on the opposite side of the dam, if you do not wish to go camping. Tulbagh is a 20 minute drive from the start and Tulbagh Tourism will be able to sort you out with accommodation in town. The Gouda Hotel might also be able to help with self catering units, so feel free to contact them as well.

Unlike our previous race, K2's will be allowed at this event. Please note that conditions are not always ideal at Vogelvlei Dam, so expect choppy conditions, if the wind picks up. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you make use of a plastic sit-on-top if you are not a competent K2 paddler. We have a limited number of Fluid Synergy's available that you can BOOK HERE.
