Nedbank Eswatini's Imvelo MTB Classic

on

Nedbank & Imvelo

Starting as Ngulube MTB Classic, the first mountain bike race in Eswatini in 2000, Mlilwane’s annual bike race changed its name to Imvelo MTB Classic in 2004.Our entries are capped to ensure we maintain a race with fabulous personality and the lowest possible environmental impact. It is quite a balancing act to remain a largely Swazi race and simultaneously attracting great competition and active participants from outside Eswatini!

**ENTRIES LIMITED TO 500**

DISTANCES

65km Nedbank Classic Marathon

The distance belies the total climb and intensity of the race. A good 20km warm up, then hit those hills…. Technical, tough and extremely rewarding. With a brand new section up in the beautiful mountains of Mlilwane North!

35km Challenge

Cutting out most of the mountains, there is a sharp little climb tacked on to the 20km warm up.

22km Family Fun Race

Age is irrelevant, pace is optional – the 20km “warm up” includes some good hills and downhills, river crossing and a solid taste of what mountain biking is all about.

12.5km Hoglet

We ensure our tiny tots have their place in the sun! Every year we have had fledgling cyclists of 4 years, so we created the Hoglets race to keep them coming. Children U12 years to be accompanied by Guardian.
