This exciting concept in racing takes athletes above and beyond any race that has ever taken part within the city. The Jump City Challenge is an inner city obstacle race that takes you through some of the Joburg’s coolest destinations and landmarks while having to conquer obstacles along the way. The organisers of this year’s race have added 2 new exciting categories in addition to the already existing 10km Rat Race category in the form of a 6km Charger, 15-20km MTB X and the Dual. MTB lovers will go crazy for this challenge as it provides eager MTB enthusiasts to cover the best parts of the city and the existing route by bike before taking to the 10km Charger category. The focus of the event is and always has been on bringing people back to the city to experience it and to offer a speed tour of our ever changing urban landscape. Athletes will be taken through 1.2km of the Museum Africa, 2.1km of Sci-Bono Discovery Centre, 500m inside the Old Bus Factory and 2km through the Chamber of Mines. Other features on route include Mary Fitzgerald Square, the Old Post Office and the Old Library just to name a few. Although the course is designed to accommodate all levels of athletes, eager enthusiasts will be put through their paces alongside their peers as they take to the obstacles on route. There is no shortage of fun to be had as athletes skittle up 6 stories outside a building, race through the custom built maze, hurl themselves over a series of high walls or find their way through an empty basement 4 stories below our city along a lifeline in complete darkness. In total there are over 24 obstacles on route, assistance is welcomed from fellow cheery participants before. The event will be hosted with Start / Finish from the iconic Newtown Junction built over the old Potato Shed and Joburg’s first railway station.

  15. Hey guys, Hope you all had an awesome weekend. Im sure majority of you have cycled at Northern Farm in Johannesburg North but have you ever done it in the dark? Snaking single tracks through the dark and leafy forests of "Mamba Alley" and "Neils knob", leg shattering short sharp hills of the "Roller Coaster", shallow river crossings at the "Jackals Den" to add to the chill and the incredible scenery offered by the farm. To add to the excitement of the challenge, look out for the awesome nocturnal wildlife that makes a home of the farm. Jackals, foxes, porcupines, owls and the resident hippo can all be spotted by those with a keen eye. This is an experience that is not to be missed. Anybody with a little grit and determination will make it through exhilarated and victorious.
