According to Mzuzu Cycling Club chairperson George Chirwa, the tournament will start from Katoto ground and registration begins at 5.30am while the race starts 30 minutes later.
Chirwa said the route is from Katoto to Chintheche and the distance is 150 kilometres for men whereas for women it is 100 kilometres.
The winners in both categories will walk away with K20 000 (about $80) each and there will also be prizes for the runners-up and third-placed.
“Whoever finishes the race within 3:22 hours will get K5 000 (about $20). This has been done to motivate the cyclists,” said Chirwa.
He thanked the late president Bingu wa Mutharika for introducing the initiative, saying it has played a big role in developing sports.
“Hopefully, the current administration will continue with the initiative. We also hope that companies will follow such a good example to sponsor sports. Minor sports are at a disadvantage as they lack sponsorship,” he said.
