The Amashova Durban Classic is celebrating turning 30 this year with the launch of a “local legends” campaign.
According to race director Annie Batchelder the campaign being run via predominantly digital platforms looks to recognise loyal cyclists who have been riding this race for 10 years or more and are esteemed members of the Green Number Club.
“The Amashova Durban Classic has become one of the major calendar events in KwaZulu Natal.
“In the last 30 years it has created a positive impact in the tourism and sports industry in the province, which I am incredibly proud to be a part of,” said Batchelder.
She added it had been satisfying to see first-hand the significant growth in the number of entries and how many “return riders” there had been.
The main event is 106km long, with two shorter options of 35km, which starts at Hillcrest and ends at Suncoast, and the 65km challenge, which starts at Cato Ridge and ends at Suncoast.
