On Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 2023 we organize a new edition of the Sint Pietersbear Trail.

A 2 day event, with 5 different distances and the possibility to participate in a 2-day-challenge!

The course will be challenging but beautiful un-Dutchlike on the Sint Pietersmountain, through the Jeker- and Maasvalley, on Dutch and Belgium territory. And of course the unique passage through the ENCI quarry. Not only a lot of singletrails but a lot of beautiful views and the occasional climbing on hands and feet.
