Livingstone– the Livingstone Sports Festival Limited (LSF) has postponed the second Livingstone MTB Epic to 2021. It is with deepest regret that we must announce the rescheduling of the 2020 Livingstone MTB Epic. 

We have enjoyed an excellent response from the Livingstone community following our inaugural events in 2019. As we prepared for this year’s event, we were excited about the public response, including pre-sales, partnerships and volunteer recruitment. However, with challenges and concerns resulting from the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, we have faced a significant number of dropouts from our presales. We have also been challenged with a significant safety risk due to increased elephant activity on our routes in the past two weeks. 

We concluded we could not create the type of event that would meet our standards and measure up to our reputation to produce quality events following our successful events in 2019. We would not have fulfilled our commitment of creating a fun and fulfilling event for all our entrants that have diligently supported us. 

We remain committed to offering regular sporting activity in Livingstone in mountain biking and other sports. We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience caused to our partners, entrants, volunteers and supporters. 

We now look to 2021 with the aim of successfully hosting our five flagship events.
