The LEAP Challenge : 21 - 27 May 2015

LEAP Challenge is a multi-day cycle tour which follows back (dirt) roads wherever reasonably possible. Each day's distance varies depending on how far it is to the next small town! We try to keep it in the region of 150km per day, but this could be rather conservative...

The 2015 LEAP Challenge will take place from the 21st to the 27th of May 2015.

grace college3Greg Perrett first completed LEAP Challenge over 9 days, solo and unsupported, in May 2012. He attempted the Comrades Marathon the following day, but only managed to do 45km of the 89km event. He then decided to open the event to the public, as a mountain bike ride from Cape Town to Pietermaritzburg over 11 days. 

The ride was done in 2013/2014 in this format. From 2015 on, it has become a multi-day cycle tour, and the length, route and location will periodically changed.

LEAP Challenge exists to raise money for LEAP, which is the Learner Enhancement and Advancement Programme. This is a part of Grace College's broader outreach initiative, Masihambisane (let's walk together). LEAP successfully educates kids who are talented but don't have the means to afford good education. If you'd like to know more, you can read up on Masihambisane and LEAP here. 

LEAP Challenge is a superb physical and mental challenge; it will take you to parts of your mind and physical ability which you have not examined before, and will distract you along the way with some of the most beautiful, deserted scenery which our country has to offer.  

Approximately 60% of your entry fee goes to funding for LEAP. The exact amount is clearly disclosed on the 'details' page.
