The inaugural Trans Draak 24hr MTB Quest took place on 22 October 2011. According to myth the Dragon cycle of life follows the path of the five elements, fierce as Fire, grounded like the Earth, calm and contemplative as a still Pool, mysterious as the Darkness, and their very presence as ethereal as a gentle Breeze. Participants in the Trans Draak will only conquer the Dragon through believe in their trusty Steed, a Magiclight to fend of the darkness, proper Armour to safeguard you from the Dragons attacks, Fitness and stamina to overcome all five elements, and of course a strong Will and Spirit with a touch of Humour to survive and conquer the mighty Dragon.
Participants in the 2011 event experienced the Dragon's presence and fierceness with a strong headwind and a number of veld fires in the area. Some prevailed, but others failed....... It has never been easy to slay a Dragon.........
Now you can also do the 12hr half distance !!
Are you prepared to slay the Dragon ?
