The 2015 event
There will be two batches of 60 teams. If the EPIC batch is full, EXTREME is now open. The route will be identical for both groups.
Sea to Ski EPIC: Thurs 1st Oct to Sun 4th Oct 2015 - FULL
Sea to Ski EXTREME: Thurs 8th Oct to Sun 11th Oct 2015 - OPEN
We have reverted to the week apart as it allows us to focus on one event at a time and offer more individual attention to the riders.
We have a new start venue for the 2015 events and that is Ocean View Hotel at Coffee Bay. Coffee Bay is easy to access and is a tar road all the way to the coast and the Mtata River gorge will offer an exciting route to Clarkebury.
First batch 'Epic' is full. Enter Here for the Extreme Batch.
