SUPPORTERS - PERSONAL SUPPORTERS
Although we encourage family and friends to support their riders during the event, it does impact our overnight race villages. Due to the limited space we do not suggest supporters come down to the race village at Mfula store unless they are collecting you for the evening or watching you cross the line..
Supporters and seconders will not be allowed to cross the Marion Foley Bridge. However should they wish to see you at the finish at Mfula Store they will be required to travel down to Mfula Store via The Rob Roy Hotel. i.e. from the Durban side. Supporters and seconders will not be allowed to drive across the silver pipe bridge at Mfula Store. The will have to park on the South side of the river and walk across the bridge.
