The route starts off deceptively gently, with mild hills from Clarens towards Bethlehem.
There is a water point exiting Bethlehem on the R26.
Follow the R716 towards Warden and Eenzaamheid.
The second water point is at roughly 70 km, just before turning right at the four-way stop onto the R57 towards Kestell.
Teams will meet up with their support vehicles in Kestell at the official Supporter Zone.
Then onwards to Golden Gate and back to Clarens.
The first finishers are expected back at President’s Square at roughly 12h00.
