The Bell Big 5 Series takes you to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and into the False Bay section of iSimangaliso.
The venue has loads of shady trees, a kid’s playground, a ready-made chill zone and - best of all - a brand new swimming pool situated right at the start/finish the Hluhluwe Privaat School makes this the perfect venue.
The track uses the parks walking trails and heads down towards Lake St Lucia where riders will be treated to single track along the lake shores. Whilst the 25km heads back to the school the 50km race enters into the northern section of the park where the single track narrows and has you ducking and diving through the trees,
The 50km heads down and again rides south along the shores before re-joining the 25km route and back to the school and a dive into the brand new pool!
Sadly the 10km track can’t quite get to the park but the route through the surrounding farmland is two loops of 5km’s which allows the parents to watch their off spring compete for a top place in the newly timed 10km Challenge.
