Entry for the 2013 Kielder 100 & Kielder 50 is now open, enter now.
The Kielder 100 is Britain's only 100 mile, single lap, off-road mountain bike race. That's right, 100 miles, not those tiny little European kilometres; one lap of a specially designed one hundred mile endurance mountain bike race course with just one road crossing, some fire roads, grass tracks and a surprising amount of challenging, technical singletrack. This is not a race for the faint hearted, just speak to anyone who rode last year.
Not up to the challenge of racing 100 miles off road? Then why not enter the new baby event, the Kielder 50. Designed to act as a stepping stone to the full challenge, the shorter distance will use the first half of the 100 mile lap, finishing on the final descent back to the village. Perfect for testing your fitness and figuring out just how much more demanding the full distance is.
As always our sponsors will be on hand providing race support and some fabulous prizes for winners and finishers alike. Many of our sponsors from previous years are returning including Accelerade, Saddle Skedaddle, Joolze Dymond, Rock UK, 7Stanes, Allendale Brewery, Exposure Lights, USE and the Forestry Commission. They'll be joined by new sponsors Mount Zoom, Run and Ride shop, ProGold, Fizik, Topeak and more.
See you in September!
