We are super excited about this year’s Pennypinchers Greyton Classic MTB and Trail Run on 13 & 14 June, which will have a 65km MTB event for the 1st time. There is also a MTB Tour on 15 June. Pre-entries at a discounted price ends on Wednesday 10 June. Some things to look forward to at The Greyton Classic:
🙂 Sunny weather once again! We have been very blessed in this department through the years.
