Experience the Mountain…

 

ON A BIKE
Old hand or first-timer, casual, beginner, adrenaline junkie, old or young – we have FIVE different races to choose from this year so there’s something for everyone. As well as the old favourites, 2023 sees the introduction of a new two-day race, the WILD, for those who’d like a bit more of a challenge but don’t want to take on Friday’s epic HARDCORE route! For full details on all the options, click here (or here for the Mini).
ON AN E-BIKE
If your pedal-power is a bit lacking in oomph and e-bikes are your thing, you can enjoy the WILD, CLASSIC or RUSH routes with a little extra help. E-bikers will be given their own ranking in each race, so you’ll be competing against your peers.
ON A HORSE
Advanced riders only are invited to join a four hour ride on homebred thoroughbred horses across the Borana Conservancy, with the chance to encounter some wonderful wildlife up close.
To register your interest, please contact nicky@borana.co.ke

The all-new Mini10to4

2023 sees the launch of a brand new Mini10to4 route!

We think it’s about time we upped the game for our younger riders and so our team is working hard to create a new route for the Mini10to4. And with the Safari Simbaz on hand to advise on how to max out on excitement and adrenaline, you can be sure this year’s Mini will be the best yet!
 

If your budding champ isn’t quite ready to face the challenge alone, there’s no need for them to miss out as you can always ride along with them to give them some moral support and help out if needed.

 

REGISTER NOW!

 

Become a Sponsor or Donor…

 

The Mount Kenya Trust works with communities to protect and enhance the wildlife, forests and water resources on Mount Kenya and also offers health and education programmes for local people. While much of this work is funded through donations and grants, most of these don’t cover the everyday running costs of the organisation – ranger salaries, insurance, administration, and other overheads – or mobilisation of resources for emergencies like fire on the mountain.

 

The more sponsorship we get towards hosting the 10to4 event we get, the more money raised by race fees can go towards supporting our work. We want every single shilling, cent, penny, and tiny amount of any other currency raised by the 10to4 event to go directly to support the vital conservation work undertaken by Mount Kenya Trust.

So even if you’re not able to race, please consider sponsorship – you can become a Friend of Mount Kenya Trust for as little as KSh 25,000.
