Info: This event has been cancelled.
Every ten years, in historic Knutsford, Cheshire, the Great Race takes place. Exclusively for penny-farthings, riders and teams from all over the world, compete in an exciting three-hour speed and distance competition that’s hard-fought and thrilling to watch.
Due to the Government restrictions in response to COVID including travel restrictions for our overseas riders and restrictions on mass gatherings, the organisers took the decision to cancel the 2020 race .
We hope to reorganise the event to take place in September 2022, but will not make a final decision until early in 2022. If we can go ahead we will reopen entries and advise all riders who have so far registered of the new date and race format etc.
The Great Race team.
