General Race Info

General Race Information


A professional team of qualified paramedics will be providing the first aid, search and rescue and paramedic services both on and off the course this year.

Their base will be at the finish of each stage as well as on the route.

They can be consulted if you have any medical problems on your return from each stage.

There will be support vehicles and quad bikes on the stages to attend to any mishaps or accidents/injuries which may occur.

You will have emergency contact numbers for this service pre-printed on your race number.

Massage Facilities

Sports massages can be booked directly at Waterberg Lodge.

Bike Wash Facility

There will be a bike wash facility set up near the finish area after each stage.

Please can you ensure that you tip the bike washers.

Important Note

For bike security it is recommended that riders wait for their bikes to be washed, and not leave them to be collected later. Riders are requested not to leave accessories of value on the bike while it is being washed i.e., computers, heart rate monitors, GPS receivers, pumps, saddlebags etc. Once your bike has been washed, it is to be placed in the Bike Park in the designated area.

Whilst the utmost care will be taken, The Waterberg Adventure, race organisers, sponsors, landowners, helpers etc. will not be held responsible for any losses or damage to any bicycles, accessories etc. while bikes are being washed or at the bike wash facility.


Rider registration and race number pickup will take place at the Waterberg Game Lodge on Friday the 29th of October from 12.00 to 17.00

Please Note: A comprehensive rider briefing will then take place at 18.00
