The Challenge?

Take on Paarl Adventure Trails’ toughest northern climb, Ares.

The Ares segment, named after the Green god of war – or more precisely – the spirit of battle, is about as popular at the Greek deity was. Known to be brutal and bloodthirsty, Ares was not celebrated widely, but those that conquered him, were.

The Ares segment is a steep 10% average grade climb. It is rocky and rutted and to add insult to injury, you need to climb to get there – some 650 meters over 20 kilometers. However, the reward will be worth it with 10 kilometers of sublime downhill taking you back over the Superbowl section to Rhebokskloof below.

Ares will try to break you but those that conquer it will be legendary.

Conquering this challenge will bestow on the winning lady and gent, the Paarl Adventure Trails King (or Queen) of Paarl Mountain Leg 2 title. Complete the other two legs of the challenge as well and be crowned the 2021 King/Queen of Paarl Mountain.

Prizes include entries to the Hero Adventure Night Series, the Rock Race, the Paarl MTB Challenge, The Flatrock Festival  as well as goodies from Uwe Koetter, Wilderer, CBC, Fairview, Spice Route and Rhebokskloof.

Challenge open to cycling and running disciplines.
