The Jammie will be a test of character. Some will stop for a moment to enjoy the views, others will focus on their own survival  and mission.

The Light Duty can be completed by most trail runners - but expect to go off-road all the way with steep ascents and descents.

The never say die attitude permeates through everything we do.

We DARE you to CONQUER your fears by entering your Recce Race and

to EXPLORE the beauty of nature while pushing the boundaries...


Jammies: Only a few will attempt the Recce Raid while not everybody will conquer the Recce Mission. ‘Jammies’ will complete a section of the Mission routes, mostly during day-time. Each Jammie finisher receives a dogtag style Recce Jammie medal.


Mission riders will experience exhilarating downhills and challenging climbs - for most these will become monsterous as the event progresses. There will be many obstacles along the route to overcome and to complete your mission.

The non-technical Jammie route will be epic - it will largely follow the Mission route and take riders to places that they have never visited before...

Riders participating in the Light Duty will have a MTB classic experience - is this the perfect MTB route?

Mission runners will explore endless mountain and river tracks along the eastern escarpment. For some the numerous waterfalls along the route will be a valuable source of water, for others it might be just one too many challenge to overcome.

Recce Mission: Each Recce Mission finisher receives a uniquely numbered Special Forces style Recce Mission polished stainless steel dogtags. Similar to the Special Forces Operators Badge, this number can only be issued once to a Recce Mission finishers. 

Those that conquer the Recce Mission will become the proud owners of a uniquely numbered stainless steel Recce Mission dogtag

Finishing the Recce Raid (Rouleurs) event will be the Honoris Crux or Medal of Honour of mountain biking while those that fail might feel they need a Purple Heart!

Recce Raid: The iconic symbol of achievement in the ultra endurance sport fraternity? Each year 46 numbered golden MTB Raid and Trail Raid dogtags will be prepared; not all will be handed out... 

'Journey' and 'Limit' finishers receive a Special Forces style golden Recce Raid stainless steel dogtag that is numbered 1 to 46.  

The winners for the MTB Mission and Trail Mission events also receive a golden Recce Mission dogtag

Light Duty: Finishers of the scenic yet challenging three-quarter marathon distance Light Duty events receive a dogtag style Recce Light Duty medal.

Civvy and Mini Recce: Finishers of the short distance events receive a dogtag style Recce Civvy wooden medal.

The Civvy and Mini Recce mountain bike events will be fun for all riders that participate - or will there be a surprise along the way...?

The Civvy trail run will be fun through the bush tunnels and along the upper Crocodile river on the outskirts of Dullstroom.

The Mini Recce trail run might be a challenge for some, but all runners will enjoy every meter of this non-technical trail route.

The Raid will be the equivalent of an off-road MTB Rouleurs - the Honoris Crux or Medal of Honour of trail running; for those that fail it will feel as they need a Purple Heart!
