Distance: Approx 80KM on Day 1 & 62KM on Day 2 Minimum Age: 17+ Date: 12th & 13th February 2021 Early Bird Entry Fee: Ksh 30,000 / $300 / £225
Extreme, adj. exceeding what is usual or reasonable.
Held over two days, the Extreme combines both the Hardcore and the Roller Coaster Classic. This event will challenge the fitness and technical abilities of seasoned mountain bikers and elite teams.
Covering approx. 80km on Day 1, riders will face an elevation gain and loss of nearly 2000m with fast technical sections and single track all on Borana Conservancy. Day 2 follows with the Roller Coaster, a 62km race, that has become synonymous with the 10to4.
The Extreme is not for the faint of heart. If in doubt over either your endurance capabilities or technical riding prowess perhaps the “Classic or Rush” is the answer? You must be a seasoned mountain bike rider to take part.
Distance: 62KM Minimum Age: 14+ Date: 13th February 2021 Early Bird Entry Fee: KSh 24,000 / $240 / £180
Held on Day 2, the Classic is an experience that has become synonymous with the 10to4. Starting at nearly 3000 meters, (10,000 feet), on the northern slopes of Mount Kenya, riders will descend some 70km over demanding terrain, through indigenous forest and wide open plains, abundant with wildlife, down to the Ngare Ndare Forest at 1940 meters, (6400 feet) and then onto Borana Conservancy, finishing at Borana Race Village.
The ride is not, however, all downhill, featuring some vicious climbs when the body least wants it. Estimated ride time between 2 and 6 hours depending on ability. A high level of fitness and experience is required.
Distance: 56.6KM Minimum Age: 14+ Date: 13th February 2021 Early Bird Entry Fee: KSh 24,000 / $240 / £180
Running concurrently with the 'Classic' on Day 2, 'The Rush' is a less arduous 56km ride but will still provide exhilaration for mid-level cyclists and those seasoned mountain bikers who spend more time in their office chairs than is good for them.
Estimated ride time between 2 and 5 hours depending on ability.
Distance: 39KM Minimum Age: 10+ Date: 13th February 2021 Early Bird Entry Fee: KSh 15,000 / $150 / £115
Running concurrently with the ‘Classic’ and ‘Rush’ on Day 2, the Slide is a gently undulating and pleasant ride, suitable for all. Estimated ride time for this 39km route is between 1.5 to 4 hours, depending on ability.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be awarded to two categories of competitors: the under-18 riders and over-18 riders.
Children between the ages of 10 and 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times during the event.
