SWAZILAND: Inyatsi Swazi Frontier Supporting Local Communties

The Inyatsi Swazi Frontier, now in its eleventh year, brought together over 180 cyclists from all over the world to make Swaziland the centre stage. With cyclists from neighbouring countries Mozambique and South Africa, and as far as Canada, United Kingdom and Malaysia, this event has now become a global spectacle.

The Inyatsi Swazi Frontier is an annual mountain bike race held over 3 days in the North West corner of Swaziland. The route is carefully designed to showcase some of Swaziland’s most spectacular and scenic mountains and valleys, from Malolotja to Pigg’s Peak.

The social responsibility of the Inyatsi Swazi Frontier is at the forefront of the event.

"We are cognisant of the fact that this event takes place through some of the poorest communities of our country, hence it became not just imperative but also humane for us to give back to the same communities," explains Brett Foss, event director.

In an interview, Foss revealed that the Inyatsi Swazi Frontier has built a classroom, kitchen and store room, a toilet block, and erected a water tank at Sokhula Pre- School Care Point and Sebenta Adult Education Centre in Nginamadvolo. Nginamadvolo is a rural community that thrives on subsistence farming.
