The 24th edition of the Lake Farm Centre Charity Run & Ride will be held on the weekend of 23 & 24 March 2019. Die Burger and PE Express have confirmed their media partnership for the 2019 event.

As always, the ultimate goal is to raise much-needed funds and create awareness for Lake Farm Centre, a residential centre for physically and intellectually challenged adults.  We also intend for the sponsors and participants of this event to enjoy a safe, fun and meaningful family experience.  The biggest highlight for the residents is to mingle with the community at this wonderful family affair.

The 24th edition will consolidate the weekend of family activities  :-

on Saturday:-

  • the three road events - a 5km & 10km road walk/run and a 24km training run;
  • three trail events - 2km, 4km and 15km trail walk/run; and

on Sunday:-

  • three fun mountain bike events -  a 3km Kiddies ride (the good); 6km 14km (the bad) and 20km (the ugly!) fun mountain bike rides through the neighbouring countryside.
  • PLUS this year we also have a 20km E-bike category!!!

Entrants will enjoy the Lake Farm Centre’s famous scones and tea/coffee, as well as pancakes and boerewors rolls.

The event will end off with the popular Lake Farm Centre’s Band performing, prize-giving, lucky draws and the fun Charity Auction.

Exciting new developments on the farm

New Vegetable Tunnels and extra vegetable gardens sponsored by Ezethu Trust

New atmosphere and products in our improved shop at the centre.

In July 2015 the Ezethu Development Trust Fund made it possible for Lake Farm Centre to develop new vegetable tunnels, improve our farm sheds and add new workshops including a herb garden under the new plastic tunnels.

Watch this space for more updates and photos of the new farm and workshop facilities or visit our Facebook page for regular updates.

When last did you visit the shop? The visitors are excited about new decor, extra tables, new products including frozen meals, fresh vegetables, gifts, leather products and much more to enjoy. We still have the best scones and Masterton's Coffee in town.  The farm and staff welcomes small groups to visit our coffee shop during the weekdays if they make arrangements with the office a week or two in advance.
