The 2016 Eselfontein Festival, sponsored by Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing, will be taking place from Friday, October 14, to October 16 in Ceres.
The Festival includes a three stage Mountain Bike event and Trail Run, which begins with a 40km day/night challenge at 6pm on Friday. Routes on Saturday, October 15, include the 60km MTB kicking off at 7am, as well as a 21km trail run and 10km fun run/walk. On Sunday the 50km MTB continues from 7am.
“There’s lots to do for the whole family like market food stalls, jumping castles and games for kids,” says Deon Malherbe, a Tru-Cape grower and owner of Eselfontein.
Last year’s event raised R47000 for Huis Maudie in Ceres, an old-aged facility. “We are offering free camping grounds for all entries,” concludes Malherbe.
