The ‘HAVOC’ in Naivasha is an amazing trail run and mountain bike challenge in which participants will compete in an extremely beautiful and scenic land in Kenya set in the heart of the Great Rift Valley overlooking the iconic Lake Naivasha.

The concept of the HAVOC challenge is to re-create the feeling of running and cycling in natural country terrain that would allow participants to experience natural conditions as far as possible whilst also presenting a challenging, interesting and enjoyable event.

The Aberdare Hills Golf Resort set to be a world class Golf Resort in the heart of Naivasha’s country side will host the HAVOC race for the second time this year. This is an off-road challenge featuring a unique mix of great running and mountain bike trails across open breathtaking and picturesque grounds and through indigenous vegetation. There is a series of technical challenges using man-made obstacles with all the courses featuring a huge number of nature’s finest obstacles from gorge running, river, dams, fallen trees, ditches, hills and dense foliage, making the challenge more organic.


The race is comprised of 30km, 15km and 7km challenges divided into several parts from which participants will take part accordingly. The day will also feature a 1K Fun Run for Kids.


Havoc Weekend isn’t just about the grown folks – it’s a family friendly weekend too. With the Young racer event for kids you can get the little ones involved. Young Racer is aimed at 15 year olds and younger and is set up to approximately 2km, which includes sections from the adult race. Your child can choose to do either 1 lap of the course or 2.
