This popular event offers an exclusive opportunity to test your stamina and endurance at one of the iconic venues from London 2012 - the Mountain Bike Circuit used in both the men's and women's MTB Olympic races. The race offers the unique chance to run this challenging course, but expect hills, more hills, mud and more mud!
The self-contained course is the ideal venue for a Covid-safe event. All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and trophies for the leading runners and age category winners.
Entering the event
If you have entered the race in good time, your race number will be sent to you in the post.
If you have entered the race close to the race date, you will need to collect your race number on the morning of the event. If you proceed to the registration table, a race official will write down your name and advise you of your race number – and you will be asked to sanitise your hands and, if you wish, put on gloves, before collecting your number from a storage box on the desk. Please remember to social distance from the race official and anybody else who is collecting a number. A race official will manage any queues to ensure everybody remains socially distanced.
Entries are available online until midnight the night before the event.
Race numbers must be worn on the front of your shirt and not on your legs or back. If you do so you may not receive an accurate time. Make sure you do not damage the chip. Please make sure you complete the medical information on the reverse of your number. Remember race numbers are non-transferable. This is particularly imperative at this time as it is now more important than ever that we know who is taking part in the event.
"I knew it would be tough and it didn't disappoint. Superb location - the views would have been admirable if only you could take your eyes off where you were putting your feet! Great support and a special mention for the marshalls - conditions for them were atrocious yet they remained enthusiastic and encouraging throughout the race. Good tip in the race instructions to bring a flask of hot drink for afterwards - I wouldn't have thought of it myself and it really did the trick. Really nice medal for finishers and a Jaffa Cake (yay!)"
