About the Absa Cape Epic
The Absa Cape Epic is held over 8 days in March every year, covering approximately 700 kilometres with 15,000m of climbing in South Africa’s Western Cape.
Every year, the early bird entries sell out faster than you can say ‘Indwa’ (the Zulu name for South Africa’s national bird, the Blue Crane). But, as an entrant in the Reef to Reef, you have the unique possibility of guaranteeing a team entry for yourself and your partner.
What you have to do
To qualify for one of the entries, regardless whether via performance, or through the draw, you will need to register your interest on your registration form prior to the race. If you forgot to tick that box and would like to register your interest you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Need more time to consider the challenge? You can still sign up at the event by seeing the crew at Information until the evening of stage 2.
