The first nonstop sani2c, which was held in 2007, was possibly ahead of its time. 15 years later and in response to countless requests from those who rode back then, we re-introduced the sani2c nonstop in June 2022.
A 24-hour cut-off, teamed mountain bike marathon event with a difference, the sani2c nonstop is a point-to-point ride. Starting at the base of the Sani Pass and finishing on the shores of Scottburgh beach, it covers a total distance of 250 kms, which must be completed within 24 hours.
The event is designed for true adventurers who will enjoy the challenge of riding and navigating their way from the southern Drakensberg and over sections of the iconic sani2c route to the KwaZulu-Natal east coast. The route traverses varied and contrasting terrain, over hills and through valleys with spectacular scenery. Created by a family of passionate mountain bikers who actively compete in endurance events themselves, it will test and reward riders who love the challenge of adventure and competition.
One of the things that makes the sani2c nonstop extraordinary is its format. With each team comprising either two, three or four cyclists, plus a support crew and one vehicle, it will be a true test of partnerships, endurance and commitment, with the emphasis on team effort and cooperation. To compete, you will need a great team with excellent orientation skills, heaps of stamina, brilliant night lights and a vibrant spirit of adventure.
