Building upon our excellent reputation for endurance mountain bike races is this exciting new 8 hour race at the hugely popular Hamsterley Forest. Using a combination of forest tracks and engaging single track you'll get to race a superb 8 mile course to complete as many laps as you can. Do this solo or part of pairs. Take it seriously and race on the red line or just take your time and enjoy it. Each lap you'll get the chance to perfect that line and get dialled in to knock that little bit extra off for maximum satisfaction. As usual there will be a large number of categories to race for.
There will be electronic timing and if there's a suitable connection we'll have live results available for people to follow. "Pits" will all be on the field next to the race route - and by pits it usually means just turning up and operating out the back of your car! For those who want to throw up gazebos and have a party then go right ahead. Parking is included but camping the night before is £10 extra and goes to Forestry England. There is no option to camp Sunday night after the event. For those of you that know the area it will take place in The Grove and not the main public forestry car park area. It will be sign posted from the main roads so everyone should pick it up correctly.
Our event team will endeavour to keep you safe whilst jeering/ heckling/ encouraging you to keep going. A full medical team will be on hand for peace of mind and our comms systems keep tabs on what's going on. You can rest assured we'll do everything we can to look after you on the day.
Please keeping checking the website as more details will be added as the event gets closer.
