CLASSIC – 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).
RUSH – 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.
SLIDE – Running concurrently with the ‘Classic’ & ‘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.
Children between the ages of 10 and 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times during the event.
This race is open to individuals or teams of between 4 and 6 riders. For teams, the best 4 times being used to calculate the team prize
THE CHASE – The CHASE is a brand new trail running race that will follow the Slide cycle course. Starting at Borana Race Village, the runners will be transported to the start line on Ol Donyo farm. This is a ONE WAY route, heading through the farmlands, into the Ngare Ndare forest and onto the Borana plains.
HORSE RACE – The Altitude ride will be mostly, but not entirely over the Slide bike race route and incorporate a range of environments from community, farm and bush riding. It will take just under 3hours with a rest point at the Ngare Ndare canopy walk. The horses will ride as one group and will be professionally guided.
ENDURO – Enduro is a type of mountain bike racing where the downhills are timed, and the uphills are not. Riders are timed in stages that are primarily downhill, with neutral “transfer” stages in between. The transfer stages usually must be completed within a time-limit, but are not part of the accumulated time.
Enjoy the trails, have fun, meet people, ride great technical trails.
