The LITE is designed for those social riders with an average daily distances of 60km and elevation of 1200m . The fact that you can rub shoulders with the pros and ride a common route for at least 70% of the time makes the LITE category extremely appealing.
Be warned however - once the PEPLETT bug has bitten, the TOUGH will be on your radar for the next year.
The Team/Solo standard package consists of :
- Official Race Garment and Race Finisher's T-shirt
- 3 Delicious meals per day (Vegetarian options available)
- Tented Village (A spacious 3-man tent + comfortable mattresses)
- Hot showers, clean accessible toilets.

Limited pre-event tented accommodation will be made available at Woodridge. This includes dinner on the night of registration, tent with mattress and breakfast on Day 1 before Start. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
Alternatively, you can book your own accommodation in and around Port Elizabeth.
During the Event:
Each rider is allocated their own spacious 3-man tent. Comfortable mattresses will be provided but you will need to bring your own sleeping bag and pillows. Tents will be erected before you arrive.
All competitors must make their own accommodation (if required) arrangements for after the finish of the event.
Each competitor will be issued with a 100-litre dust- and water-proof plastic box, marked with your race number. All your essential clothing, bike spares, energy drinks etc. need to be packed into this box and it will be transported from village to village. No other bags will be transported. It will be your responsibility to pack your box, and deliver it to the Luggage Truck before the start of each day. Your box will be delivered to your tent at each village before you arrive.
There will be a separate truck travelling directly to the Finish with bike boxes and other kit not required during the race.
Black Boxes need to be returned at the Finish where you will exchange it for your Finisher Shirt.
