JAN HARMSGAT MTB & TRAIL RUN FESTIVAL - 2 DAY STAGE RACE

27-29 March 2020

Join us at the end of March 2020 for the inaugural JHG MTB and Trail Run Festival.

Just a 2-hour drive outside of Cape Town on the R60 highway, off the N2, as you head into the Garden Route you’ll find this gem of a historic farm, Jan Harmsgat.

Just across the road, lies the 680-hectare working farm with hand-picked cultivars that make the single-block JHG Wines. 

The tranquil country setting that surrounds all of Jan Harmsgat offers guests the peace to revitalize their spirit.
Jan Harsmgat is also known for its child-friendly facilities.


Mardouw Olive Estate is a neighboring farm to Jan Harmsgat at the foothills of the Langeberg Mountains.  Mardouw produces pure, natural extra virgin olive oils, made from hand-picked olives and same-day cold extraction of the best cultivars on the estate itself.
