What is The Munga?

The
toughest races on earth

“At the Munga we celebrate what it is to be human. We know the fight. We know what it means to grovel, and grind, and crawl in desperation to the light at the end of the tunnel. We know what it’s like to hang on to a thread, but claw and pull it back till it’s a tight rope, and walk that thin line, balancing the life and death of dreams, till at last we lean forward and the momentum of action carries us inexorably towards our destiny! At the Munga, we know what it’s like to live, but really live”

Alex Harris – Munga Race Director

THIS IS THE MUNGA

THE ULTIMATE LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE YOU CAN HAVE ON A BICYCLE.

Can a bicycle race change your life?

The Munga was launched way back in 2014, and at first it seemed like a crazy idea. To race 120 Hours non-stop across the arid Karoo in summer, really? But it soon became the go to ultra-endurance mountain bike race in South Africa, and the bench mark by which all other long races are measured. In it’s short history, the race has become somewhat of an iconic event, and a bucket list race for anyone who has ever been on a mountain bike! When people ask you if you have done the Munga, they are not interested in your time.

It’s a yes or no answer!

THE MUNGA MERCHANDISE

PEOPLE LOVE OUR RACE.
THEY LOVE OUR BRAND.
THEY LOVE OUR LOGO.

People love our race. They love our brand. They love our logo and anything they can get their hands on that has that logo on it! We are always under pressure to put out some merchandise with that iconic logo, but we are also fussy!

While we are happy for riders to use our logo on their own kit as part of their charity drives etc. when it comes to the Munga officially putting out kit, only the best will do! Period. To that end, we are fostering some exciting relationships to help meet the demand of our fans, but also the quality we expect.

EARN YOUR STRIPES

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Everytime you complete a Munga in the time period, you receive a commission. Starting with a Lance Corporal, or one stripe, when you complete your second Munga you get promoted to full Corporal, or two stripes. The next one is a Sergeant, or three stripes, and so on, and so on. Each Munga recruit who crosses the finish line in the allocated time will receive his or her corresponding stripe to wear with pride. The Munga stripes are a right of passage to be worn proudly by those who have earned them and been promoted. But they are also an incentive to stay in the fight against the ordinary.

We want you, to join the army in the fight against mediocrity!

REWARD PROGRAMME

The fact that there are ten levels of rank implies more than one Munga event. Yup. That’s right. The intention is to roll out similar format Munga races around the world where recruits can enter multiple campaigns (races) in a year and be promoted through the ranks. Actual rewards will be revealed over the course of the next few years, so watch this space. And if you cannot wait for a second Munga event, why not enter the Munga Grit, another road to stripes!

BELOW ARE THE TEN LEVELS OF RANK IN THE MUNGA ARMY.
