WCAD 1 – Drakenstein Adventure Race

The first leg of the 2013 WCAD series of Adventure Races, which took place on 2 March in Franschhoek. All races in the Western Cape ADventure Series offer a 50km and 100km distance option involving navigation whilst trail running/trekking, mountain biking and usually a paddle leg and ropework of sorts.

WCAD 1 Drakenstein was organized by Steve Burnett. It started and finished at the Groot Drakenstein Games Club and involved a 5km micro-nav on surrounding farms, followed by a MTB leg to a transition at Mont Rochelle. Teams then completed a trekking loop before returning back to the start/finish on their bikes.
