Race to the Sea 2019 is postponed until further notice due to rockfall at Franschhoek Pass. Organizers have been in contact with the road agencies and it is clear the pass will not be ready by 19 October 2019. Online entries are closed and will reopen once we have a clear indication closer to the completion of the Franschhoek Pass.

 

“We have considered all the outcomes and tried to adjust the route. Unfortunately, it will not be the same race without the iconic Franschhoek Pass.” Race Director, Hennie Scheepers
