Distances: 2750 km
Difficulty: Extreme terrain with frequent steep hills and long sustained climb

The Rhino Run is an immersive bikepacking expedition with a charitable focus. 

Riding solo and unsupported riders will explore South Africa’s Western and Northern Cape regions, then cross the border into Namibia, finishing at the capital, Windhoek. Riders will be responsible sourcing their own food, water, shelter and any other services along the way, all which must be publically accessible.

The Rhino Run is a kaleidoscope of beautiful views, brutal climbs, epic switchbacks, and mind-numbingly straight roads that disappear into the horizon. Nowhere in the world will you experience sunsets like those in Africa.

You choose what distance you ride. Challenge yourself with the full course and experience all this incredible route has to offer, or select the entree route for those who may be just getting into bikepacking racing, or have less time to travel. 

All riders will depart at the same time.
