About the route
This years Jackal Dash will Start & Finish at Northern Farm Mtb Park
20km Mtb
The 20km Mtb will happen within the trails at Northern Farm, this is a great introduction to Mtb racing with a fair combination of district roads & single track. There is nothing technical about this route. Total ascent +- 150m
Entry fee R180
Fee includes single access pass to the farm to use at a later date valued at R50 + complimentary post event bike wash. The 1st 100 registrants will each receive an event T-Shirt. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal upon completion.
 
40km Mtb
This is probably the most popular of all the categories & sells out well before the race & for a good reason.
This is the perfect blend of Northern Farm trails and it's neighboring reserves. We avoid the extreme friendship testing hilly stuff & take you just far enough to enjoy the beauty of the Rhenosterspruit reserve. Whilst inside the farm, we take you to the action of our most loved trails without you having to be a technical wizard behind the bars. Total ascent +- 250m
Entry fee R240
*Entry fee includes single access pass to the farm to use at a later date valued at R50 + complimentary post event bike wash. The 1st 100 registrants will each receive an event T-Shirt.
All finishers will receive a commemorative medal upon completion.
60km Mtb
We call this distance the "Cake Tin" for a reason, we get to see who trained over the festive period & who got stuck into the cake tin. This is a great test of your endurance resolve & skill, but 2020 will be faster as we have reversed the loop to make it easier & more flowing.
This route takes you into the heart of the Rhenosterspruit Reserve, you will not believe that you are so close to Joburg when you make your way through the testing single trails back to the farm. Inside the farm we have laid out a combination of our most enjoyable trail for you, but as with any single track work still needs to be done to get you home... Total ascent 650m 
Entry fee R280
*Entry fee includes single access pass to the farm to use at a later date valued at R50 + complimentary post event bike wash. The 1st 100 registrants will each receive an event T-Shirt. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal upon completion.
e-bike 40km Mtb
There is no arguing that e-bikes have their space in mtb races, so we have provided a completely stand alone category for e-bike riders. 
The e-bike 40km will follow the same route as the race 40km, the only difference is that this category will go off in a batch of their own.
Entry fee R240
*Entry fee includes single access pass to the farm to use at a later date valued at R50 + complimentary post event bike wash. The 1st 100 registrants will each receive an event T-Shirt. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal upon completion.
