Join the Grand Finale festivities
The Untamed African MTB race culminates at Val de Vie Estate on the Grand Finale day, the finish of the final stage, where riders celebrate their achievements. Besides supporting these heroes, it is a great day out for the whole family.
There are a range of activities for the whole family, including the dedicated Virgin Active Club-V where there will be Swing Ball, Soccer and a Mini Obstacle Course amongst other activities! The more energetic youngsters can expend some of that energy at the kids pump track, for future Absa Cape Epic riders.
Relax and enjoy refreshments in the Castle Lite Chill Zone on the finish line, where cover band The Professors will play from 12:00 onwards to celebrate the end of the 2017 race and grab a bite to eat at one of the many food trucks in the race village.
Hospitality in The Epic Lounge is also available, a premium space to enjoy the festivities of the finish line.
Parking and entrance is free
