ROUTE INFORMATION

One route option on offer –

  • 61 miles

“In response to feedback from last years participants, organisers plan to do the same course – the challenging variety of road and track surface gave the event a unique feel – but do it in an anti-clockwise direction. This will get the really strenuous hills over at the beginning of the event.  The route will still consist of over 61 miles of contrasting road surface from tarmac road, Kielder’s awesome Lakeside Way through to forest logging roads taking in stunning scenery.”
