Underberg – The 2023 edition of the popular Euro Steel Drak Descent will take place in and around Underberg on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January 2023.

The entry for both events will be capped as it has been in the past, with riders taking on the 91km full event either in traditional teams of two or solo riders, while less experienced riders can take on the shorter 43km Euro Steel MTB Challenge.

The race follows the uMzimkhulu River and shadows the popular N3TC Drak Challenge canoe marathon that takes place at the same time.

The Euro Steel Drak Descent supports the Restmount Children’s Home that provides holidays for underprivileged children. The first day of the race starts at Restmount Children’s Home, and finishes at the Swartberg Road Bridge. The second stage ends at the Umzimkhulu River Lodge.

The Euro Steel Drak Descent forms part of the Drak Adventure Weekend with the N3TC Drak Challenge canoe marathon and the Euro Steel Run The Rivers trail run all taking place over the same weekend.

The registration venue will be at the Olde Duck restaurant.
