31 OCTOBER – 03 NOVEMBER 2019

FOUR DAYS OF ADVENTURE AWAITS!
#DrylandTraverse

From the dark damp fissures of the world-renowned Cango Caves, to the snow packed peaks of the mighty Swartberg mountain range, this is the Dryland Traverse and it is a race like no other. From an underground start to an eventual cresting of the highest mountain range in the Cape, there simply is no equal when it comes to a sense of achievement, setting and the overall spirit – the Dryland Traverse is a must for every adventure seeker.

THE 2018: WALL OF FAME

Congratulations to all our category winners at the 2018 Dryland Traverse.
You made us proud and we look forward to seeing you again in November 2019!

I have done many 3 day events (MTB, AR, Trail) and this is probably the one with the best atmosphere ever. I could not believe the party on Saturday night - I have never seen that before on a stage race. Fantastic. Also love the friendly care that the organisers take and attention to detail. Very special event. Well Done!
