WINDHOEK, AUG. 29 – Namibians will finally bid farewell to a cold winter, and prepare to embrace the blooms of a new season: spring. Nedbank’s popular Spring Festival will bring a nation out of “hibernation mode” back into the fresh air of the outdoors life on 31 August 2018 at the IJG Trails in Kleine Kuppe, Windhoek.
The Nedbank Spring Festival is renowned for being a social round up for family and friends, proudly sponsored by Nedbank Namibia, Cycletec, Food Lovers Market, Coca Cola and Powerade, Kickstart Nam, Specialized and Giant.
The new venue will allow runners and cyclists to test their post winter fitness levels on a wide variety of new trails.

Participants from all over the country are invited to get into the swing of spring by entering to run, cycle or for the Off Road Duathlon.
Trail runners can enter the long trail run of 10km or the short run of 5km. Avid mountain bikers can enter the short 20km ride or the 40-45km long ride. An Off-road Duathlon will include a 2km run, 20km mountain ride and a 5km run.
