The organizers of the Roof of Africa, one of the most esteemed events in the world of Hard Enduro, today announced a revision to the event dates for 2024. Following careful consideration and significant feedback from the riding community, the Roof of Africa will take place from November 28th to November 30th, 2024.

Originally scheduled for November 6th to the 9th, the organizers received valuable input from participants, particularly school and university-age riders, urging a reconsideration of the dates to accommodate their participation better. Recognizing the importance of these young riders in shaping the future of the sport, the organizers undertook thorough discussions with stakeholders to find a suitable resolution.

“It has always been our intention to ensure the Roof of Africa remains an inclusive and internationally renowned event,” said Ross Whitehead, Event & Operations Manager of the Roof of Africa organizing committee. “We understand the significance of catering to the diverse needs of our community, from top-tier athletes to local enthusiasts, and finding the right balance is paramount.”

The revised dates aim to strike a balance between accommodating the broader riding community, including participants in the Hard Enduro World Championship and Super Enduro World Championship, while ensuring the event remains competitive and challenging for all involved.

“We acknowledge that there are no perfect dates, and one of our concerns which remain is that the later we have “Roof” in the year the higher the risk of summer rains, but this is beyond our control and the community has spoken for 2024,” added Ross Whitehead. “in saying that, we believe that the November 28th to 30th window offers the best compromise for our diverse community of riders for this year.” We will be doing an in-depth date survey later this year to see what dates suit all the stakeholders for 2025 and beyond.

The Roof of Africa organizing committee is grateful to the riding community for their invaluable feedback and understanding during this process. They assure participants that they are fully committed to delivering an exceptional event in 2024, and efforts are underway to ensure every aspect of the Roof of Africa exceeds expectations.
