South Africa's Original Marathon Distance MTB Race

The Steeltek MTB Race first took place in 1990, making it South Africa's longest running marathon distance MTB race.

It is one of 4 official annual Fat Tracks MTB Club races, and was conceived as being a tough marathon distance MTB race specifically designed to test the endurance of riders.

It will take place again at Hopewell Estate, offering stronger riders a choice of a tough 60km and those that aren't so strong can opt for the slightly less tough 40km route, and we also have a real easy 20km route for thos that don't feel up to the longer distance challenges.
