The Grootbrak Grabadoo will take place over two days this year

Posted on 20 November 2020

The 18th Grootbrak Grabadoo is only 6 weeks away and this year the event will take place on two days. In line with COVID-19 restrictions, only 500 entrants can participate a day.

The event will be held on December 30 and December 31 2020.

The Grootbrak Grabadoo is one of the biggest cycling events in the area and the perfect way to say goodbye to the old year.

Runners, walkers, families and even pets can participate in the most beautiful walk in the Garden Route, South Africa, around the Great Brak River in a 4.8 km route.

Mountain bikers can choose from four exciting routes which includes some wonderful twists and turns in the forest – 15 km, 36 km, 53 km, and 69 km.

Vodacom is again the premier partner for this year’s event. SPAR De Dekke is onboard again with Mossel Bay Tourism who will man water points.

‘Mossel Bay Tourism is very appreciative of private initiatives and events that draw feet and Tourism income into an area. Events like the Grootbrak Grabadoo showcase a town and its treasures.  A value cannot be placed on this type of word of mouth marketing generated during such an event.  Return on investments like these comes in many forms and Mossel Bay Tourism is dedicated to the ongoing development of our rural municipal areas,’ says Aneli Gerber, the Chief Operations Officer.

Frontier Medix’s team will be in attendance throughout the race.

The main beneficiary of this event will again be Mayflower Cricket Club & CAWS 4 PAWS.

Members of the Mayflower Cricket club also contribute their energy and time to the event.

‘The club regards itself as a critical enabler to further the game and to promote development of cricket at grassroots level. In addition, the club endeavours to promote social cohesion within the communities, ensuring a positive community spirit.’
