The Race Around Rwanda is a self-supported, solo, single stage race around the fabulous Rwanda (land of a thousand hills). The hilly course consist of about 20% gravel roads, with a total distance of 1,000 km and an elevation gain of 17,000 meters.
The event also includes a Journey option, which is a non-competitive ‘light’ version, in which participants are allowed to skip the most challenging parts or even accept outside support.

For those that are looking for an ultra race in a somewhat different decor. The 1000 hills of Rwanda shape the course of a 1000km race with 17.000 m of elevation gain.
Cycling is huge in Rwanda, yet this part of the sport is completely new in this part of the continent, we have an early bird discount running until the end of the month for the fastest of mind.
Looks interesting. I suggest you have some background into the organisers in the FAQ though

I was in Rwanda earlier this year, it's a pretty incredible place for cycling
