The Dryland Experience
The Dryland Team welcomes you to this showcase of our events, each one born from a strong vision and nurtured by a
Our mission is to create world-class sporting events that expose local and overseas athletes to the unspoiled beauty of our country, whilst making a real, lasting contribution to the Socioeconomic upliftment of the areas that host the events.
The magic lies in the unique combination of ingredients, balanced to perfection by world-class event organisers. Take the breathtaking routes, legendary vibe and passionate people; mix them together under a shimmering Karoo sun, and the result is a stable of events that have achieved near legendary status.
Thirteen events and still counting…
Over ten thousand people take part in our events every year.
Whatever your sense of adventure or fitness level, Dryland has an event that speaks to you.
Many of our loyal supporters take part in multiple Dryland events in a calendar year and often across different disciplines. Athletes stand the chance to qualify for between 5% and 60% value back on their event entries, with the higher tiers qualifying for even more benefits.
The level of value back offered is determined by the rider/runner’s qualifying tier level. The opening tier levels are determined by the number of events the participant successfully completed during the last complete run of events.
We’ve been in this industry for more than 15 years! That’s long before 29er carbon wheelsets & zero-drop, barefoot running shoes became the thing.
