Watch the Racing

World Champions, Olympic medallists and courageous amateurs will begin their 2018 Absa Cape Epic journey on the 18th of March at a venue still to be announced. 

Watch from the comfort of the Castle Light Chill Zone, the big screen in the race village or on the route.

The first riders generally head off at 6:45am with the pro women field starting from 10:30am and men starting from 11:45. Watch the action unfold on the route or on the big screen in viewing areas at the venue grounds. 


Kids Zone and Pump Track

Kids of all ages can have tons of fun in the Virgin Active's kids-only offering, Club-V which is designed to inspire, educate and make it fun for kids to get active.

Supporters can safely leave their children between the ages of 3 and 13 in the hands of the capable Club-V teamChildren will have loads of activities to choose from, including Swing Ball, Soccer, Cricket, Active Play, Skills and Drills, Free Play a Mini Obstacle Courses and more.

Many of the little ones will be inspired to emulate their heroes. We have just the forum for them to do so: there will be a kids’ bike fun race and a pump track to expend some energy.

There will also be a range of food trucks in the Prologue race village, so all tastes will be accommodated: grab a bite before you settle down to enjoy the drama of the Prologue finish line.
