What is the 10to4?

A series of races designed for all ages, fitness, and abilities takes place over the three days below Africa’s second-highest peaks in some of Kenya’s most stunning and diverse protected areas and farmland. The ’10to4′ mountain bike event drops from 10,000ft altitude to 4,000ft and raises money for Mount Kenya Trust to support local communities and protect wildlife and forests.

Ride with family and friends alongside wildlife through untouched wilderness.

What’s new this year?

  • TROPIC AIR as title sponsor! Look out for their helicopter in the sky as you cycle down the mountain!
  • A hybrid ‘roller coaster’ along the new Classic route with new Borana tracks.
  • Less road and more trails.
  • RUN! Can you beat the cyclists? For the first time, a 26km running race will start from Borana Race Village on Saturday morning.
  • A 30-minute helicopter flight around Mount Kenya for the top fundraisers, along with flight prizes to Lamu and Mombasa.
  • Bike drop and transport to the Kisima start line.
  • And much more!
We are very excited to have TROPIC AIR on board who love the mountain as much as we do!
