The Namaqua Quest 3-day Trail Run and Mountain Bike events will take you to the world-renowned Namaqualand in the Northern Cape of South Africa. This region is renowned for its stunning flower-filled valleys, rugged mountains, ancient canyons, and plains with roaming Gemsbok, Zebra, and Springbok. You will be able to witness nature's magical show of color and splendor during the world's largest and most spectacular natural flower show in the beginning of September. You will have the opportunity to cycle or run in 3 different areas over the 3 days, including private property, game reserves, and communal farms. On the first day, you will explore the Copper mountains, blanketed in flowers and the Copper Trail outside the historic mining town of Okiep. The second day will take you to Goegap Nature Reserve, where you will get to observe Gemsbok, Springbok, Eland, Ostriches, and other small antelope. The third day will be spent traversing a private farm just outside Springbok, and you will get to experience the famous granite koppies (small hills) of Namaqualand, with patches of dazzling flowers decorating the landscape, as if they were drops of paint from the sky. The race village is located at the Springbok Inn Country Hotel, where you will be able to enjoy all meals, as well as a slide show of the day's fun adventures. The locals will be a part of the event, and each day's lunch will be provided wherever the race finishes.To make sure that everyone can get involved, the Namaqua Quest offers two different distances. What's more, the Trail Run and Mountain Bike events take place on the same weekend, so family members can either run or cycle and still be able to share the same experience.
