Things to Note

General information

Please note we allow up to 5 hours to complete the challenge. Helmets are compulsory everyone.

Wet weather clothing and maintenance kits are recommended. There will be a route map available to view at registration. The mark is sufficiently well marked and marshalled to make a map unnecessary.

Supporters are welcome, but please note only riders have access to the main marquee (and free refreshments). Sorry no dogs allowed on school premises at any time, with the exception of guide / working dogs. Dogs are not allowed to accompany riders on the route. An event photographer will be out on the course trying to snap you as you go past. Photographs can then be purchased after the event. Please see website or marquee for more details.


We recommend registering before the event. In the event of unexpected high number of entrants we reserve the right close entry early, have no, or limited, entries on the day. The fee includes refreshments en-route and at the end of the challenge; ­first aid and rescue/recovery (at check points) if required.

Sorry, no refunds for cancellations.

Country Code and Highway Code

Please take time to read the notice at the venue. REMEMBER riders must give way at junctions and road crossing points. Please note marshals have NO authority to control or stop traffic.


If you need to retire during the event, transport is available from the checkpoints to take you back to the school but you should be aware that priority will be given to recovery of breakdowns and accidents. On your return please notify a member of the registration team.
