What a great weekend in Sugar Rush Park on the 16th & 17th of June with the Ales for Tails Beerfest and the Holla Sugar Rush Classic proudly fuelled by Landrover Ballito.  Live music, Craft beer on tap, delicious food, market stalls and a variety of races to enter created an awesome vibe across the 2 day festival with over 2000 people visiting the park.

Holla Trails provided routes which left the runners and riders begging for more – some of the best trails in the world right here on our doorstep and open all day and all year round.

Well done to all the crew who made the event such a success especially the main sponsors Landrover Ballito and Enterprise Ilemebe.  We all look forward to the 2019 Holla Sugar Rush Classic.  Here are some stats and results from the weekend:

 

100+ kids in the Saturday afternoon event

250+ in the 19km race

300+ in the 45km

150+ runners

 

We had around 820 entries in total for the races which is a great turnout.

The Beerfest added an incredible vibe to the weekend and we managed to raise nearly R30k for Ales for Tails as well as around R9k for the Gears 4 Ears foundation through the MTBing events.
