Looking for a deep winter mountain bike race? Look no further (cough! There are only 2 in the UK). The inaugural 2017 event was blessed by heavy sleet, snow and high winds to push people right to the very edge of their abilities and physiological limits. The word “brutal” didn’t really do it justice. Now that the format has been proven it’s time to get it on once more.

Kielder is blessed with hard wearing singletrack, fast flowing sections, crushing ascents and tricky technical rock gardens to keep you on your toes. It also lies way above sea level and is well known for catching the worst of the weather as it blows through. The famous Dark Skies sit heavily above as darkness envelopes all for the vast majority of the race. If the clouds disappear then you’ll get the Milky Way in all its glory above. You’ll need determination, guts and a cracking sense of humour.

The race is aimed at being as laid back as possible with everyone pulling together. For those at the pointy end of the race you’ll push on hard into the witching hours. For others you can catch a snooze in your car or wait til morning to catch a meal in the cafe. There are a large range of prizes to aim for and everyone will go home with an event mug at the end. Electronic timing, extensive safety team, comprehensive comms, all terrain vehicles and specialist equipment are all in place to aid you. Behind all this kit is a very cheery and hardy group of marshals who will cheer you round and laugh when you stack it into some bushes.

Solo, pairs and quads are the available options. One vehicle per team out on the course.

You can make an optional donation to North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team when entering.
