Royal Drak MTB Newsletter 22 March 2019
Why else should you choose the Royal Drak MTB & Trail Run??
(Coming up next weekend 30 March 2019)

Ok so the holiday energy is infectious – families having fun together just makes the whole world look brighter, and it occurred to me that a big part of what attracts visitors to this beautiful part of the world is the open hearted friendliness of the community who live here.

So in answer to the question "Why do events?", and particularly the Royal Drak MTB & Trail Run Challenge, the other answer that came to me was that its good for the community.

Job Creation

There is always plenty of work that needs doing when getting ready for an event, which is great news in a country with unemployment rates like ours. Extra trail prep, marshalling, cleaning, registration and venue set up creates a host of opportunities for young people in the area. Besides the obvious benefit of earning some cash, young people also get to practice the skills required for success in the work place, and experience first hand the importance of tourism as a revenue generator in the area.

Community athletes

Through generous contributions from our sponsors, surrounding resorts and neighbours, we are able to host a number of community athletes who aren't in a position to fund their own entry fees. This has an immensely positive impact on the whole community, creating an atmosphere of inclusivity and co-operation contributes greatly to the warmth and welcome that visitors to the valley experience.

Royal Drakensberg Primary School

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Nelson Mandela

Anyone who subscribes to the Daily Maverick will agree that the world could definitely use some changing, and its easy to fall into the darkness of despondency. But Royal Drakensberg Primary School is a little ray of sunshine. This little school provides world class foundation phase education to the children of the Amazizi community, equipping them with confidence and a love of learning that they can take out into the world and make it brighter. All proceeds from this event go to the school so your participation benefits these little people directly.
