[Event] Weekend Warrior Grabouw


Recommended Posts

Event Name: Weekend Warrior Grabouw
When: 11 May 2019 - 12 May 2019
Where: Grabouw, Western Cape
Category: MTB





The very popular Tru-Cape Grabouw MTB has evolved into the Weekend Warrior Grabouw sponsored by Tru-Cape. What was a single day race is now a wonderful 2 day stage race.

The Tru-Cape Grabouw MTB Race has, for many years, been a fund raising initiative for the local Grabouw High School. In 2019, we are carrying on this trend and all proceeds raised will be going back to Grabouw High School. The school has done some fantastic work with the money raised in the past, from making rugby fields to refurbishing older class rooms. Herholdt, the headmaster, has some amazing plans to use the funds raised to increase the quality of learning at Grabouw High School.







You will still get to enjoy the popular and challenging routes around the Grabouw Country Club but now you get the opportunity to enjoy it over two days and stay over in a Red Cherry 3-man tent set up specially for you.

What happens if you don’t want to ride both days and take part in the stage race? Well, the extra good news is you can also still enter as a day rider either for the Saturday or Sunday. We are also letting scholar riders represent their school.

It’s more than just the ride or run as we build our entire race village with allocated camping sites, a Chill Zone, Live Music, Hot showers, Flush Toilets and plenty of Food options.

And to ensure we cater for all – there’s a

Trail Run on Saturday morning too

Just entered the two 50km events. I know the trails around Grabouw are awesome, but will this race take in those exact trails?

Is there a option to do only 1 day 


Yes. You don't have to do the stayover, and you can do any of the distances on both days, or only one of the two days.


We are planning the 50km on the Saturday afternoon and the 25km on the Sunday morning.

The "weekend package" is not an option for us, since Maritz already has something on for the one day.  We are planning to attend the other day ....

Yeah, was also waiting for weather updates before committing. Looking awesome, especially combined with the camping. Two days of riding in Grabouw - can't go wrong there

Entered but no feed back yet?

I see on their FB page that day 1 is 47.59 km with 714 m elevation and day 2 is 47.76 km with 985 m elevation gain. That is if i read the post correct?

Is this still happening? No updates, no route profiles etc???

Communication not very good - can't find race routes / profiles on their website.  


Also just a heads up:  apparently no late entries on the day(s)...
