Dear Old Boy

We are proud to announce that the Pretoria Boys High School Parents' Association are hosting the Pretoria Boys High School 24hr MTB Relay Challenge from Saturday 10 November to Sunday 11 November 2018 and we would like to invite all Old Boys to to participate.

Held on the school grounds, the route requires riders to complete as many 6 kilometre laps as possible in the 24 or 6 hour race period. Featuring 120 metres of climbing per lap, the route is made up of jeep track, singletracks and sections across the car parks and sport fields of the School. Man-made obstacles provide additional challenges for those with the technical skills to take them on, while A and B lines are provided for each technical feature - allowing the less skilled riders to safely skirt the hazards.

Entry categories include:

  • 24 hour solo race
  • 24 hour relay race for teams of 2, 4, 6 or 8 riders
  • 6 hour solo race
  • 6 hour relay race for teams of 2, 4, 6 or 8 riders
  • 6 hour "schools" relay category for teams of 4 riders

Off the bike there will be a festive atmosphere throughout the event, ensured by food trucks and complimentary camping for all riders and their support teams.

The Parents' Association would also like to offer all Old Boys the opportunity to get involved by becoming a sponsor for the event, knowing that the success of such an event is as a result of the involvement of both riders and sponsors. Sponsors will be given branding / marketing rights for the event. Please email Jamie-Lee Fisher at the school, should you be interested in a sponsorship opportunity: pr@boyshigh.com

A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Operation Healing Hands; a healthcare charity which provides life-changing surgeries to patients who would otherwise not be able to afford them.
