Victoria Falls is further positioning itself as an adventure hotspot with the recent introduction of a three-day mountain biking event that will be run annually.

The destination already hosts the annual Victoria Falls Marathon and the Zambezi Man Challenge.

The three-day race takes cyclists through the Victoria Falls National Park, along the Batoka Gorge into Botswana, following the Zambezi River into the Zambezi National Park. The route is about 275km over the three days.

Wild Frontiers, Wild Horizons and Adventure Zone (Safari Par Excellence Zimbabwe) are the official organisers of the Zambezi Man Challenge.

The event challenges participants’ rafting skills on Grade 5 rapids, followed by timed mountain bike and 42.4km marathon events.

The 42.4km Victoria Falls Marathon, says Founder, Brett Williamson, is becoming hugely successful, leading runners through the town of Victoria Falls, over the border into Zambia and back into Zimbabwe on Zambezi River Drive.

The marathon, as well as a half marathon, will be hosted on August 29.
