2019 BUCO Tomato Trot & Cycle Event Wrap Up.

The 24th Lilyfontein BUCO Tomato Trot & Cycle was an overall phenomenal success.  The event took place on 2nd February at Lilyfontein School.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the contribution your business made to ensure the success of this event.  What a tremendous accomplishment.

The event attracted 2237 entries across #6 races with at least 5000 people attending on the day. This massive undertaking required a team of 70 staff, 17 grounds staff/cleaners and 60 parent/learner volunteers.  Together we are great, has been the phrase that we have used to manage and organise the 24th Tomato Trot and Cycle.

This was the third year running that the Tomato Trot is #RUNCLEAN event, which means that no plastic sachets are used at the 9 watering stations.  Instead Lilyfontein has opted to use red VIP Products cups that are washable and re-useable each year.  Bins were donated by Corromaster and Garbie to ensure a clean event. We are an ECO School and recycling is part of our ethos.

Lilyfontein Adventure Race (AR) sums up Lilyfonteins values and ethos that we strive to achieve.  Lilyfontein School has been hosting the annual Adventure race since 2000, as the years have gone by we have created categories that cater for all ages and fitness levels. The appeal is definitely the ability to progress through the various categories and gain experience until one is ready to tackle the premium event the Corporate Division.

There is a healthy support of entries in the Grade 1-3 and Grade 4-5 divisions.  This is attributed to eagerness of both learners and parents to participate and support from local schools. 

The Family Fun category was introduced as a mild category to welcome all, to have a taste, in a fun way, to what adventure racing is all about.  It is targeted to families, friends and colleagues that want to partake but do not want to “kill” themselves whilst participating; this is a relaxed and enjoyable category to cater for all levels of fitness.

The Lilyfontein Adventure race is a Provincial Qualifier for U13, U15, U19 age categories and the winners in these divisions have qualified to participate in the Annual South African Adventure Racing Championships in September 2019.

The Corporate divisions introduce corporate teams, friends and fitness bunnies to explore the local area and apply all their skills to compete in the premium division in the event. 

The future of Adventure Racing is strong and we encourage more families and learners to participate in 2019.
