The KAP sani2c began as the dream of Farmer Glen (Glen Haw), an avid
mountain bike enthusiast and co-organiser of the Imana Wild Ride and
in 1998, together with a few local nutty mountain bikers, he
completed the first trial run.
The following year Glen scouted and refined the rugged path with the
objective of establishing a world-class route. He invited friends
and experienced mountain bikers to join in on the infamous dry runs.
In 2004, Glen was confident that a worthy route had finally been
established and agreed to by all the relevant landowners and
authorities and so February 2005 saw the staging of the inaugural
sani2c, a highly successful event despite the heavy rain and muddy
conditions of Day 2.
Public response to this "lifestyle event" was overwhelming and the
race grew to massive proportions and demand for entries and pressure
from communities wanting to participate in the event saw some
radical changes ahead of the 2008 event.
The decision to change the format of the event to be run as two
separate races - split into the sani2c Adventure and sani2c Race -
was a world first and allowed further opportunities for community
involvement and accommodated all teams on the 2007 waiting list. It
also warranted improving facilities at the overnight race villages
with the two 2008 events ultimately deemed a huge success.
2011 then again saw some big changes. Traditionally held in March,
the event was susceptible to late summer rains which had disrupted
plans every second year since it's inception. After months of
negotiating, juggling of dates with other sporting events and
planning around farming operations the dates for future sani2cís
were moved to May and right away great weather created perfect
2019 will be the fourth year that KAP Industrial Holdings Limited
will be involved in the race officially. KAP has had a longstanding
involvement with sani2c through its PG Bison timber operations in
the KwaZulu-Natal region. As sani2c has grown into a world class
event, so too has KAP grown into a leading South African industrial
company, thereby enabling it to increase its involvement in this
