The Race

This event was designed for mountain bikers to have fun, be competitive and provide an endless supply of great memories! No matter the level (beginner to expert) it is there for you.

After a very successful round of the recent Leinster Championships we felt that it was the perfect venue for a 12 mountain bike race. A very dedicated team of trail builders created some single track heaven, hand carved in ancient broad leaf forrest. This trail has now been extended to increase the distance to a 10k.

• Male, Female or Mixed
•12 hrs non stop

  • Most laps wins
  • For team Categories – Each raider must complete 2 laps
  • 10k loop, top raiders will cover this in 40 mins, mortals should allow upto 1.5hrs.
  • In order to have all raiders off the couse for 9pm you must start your last lap before 7.30pm
  • If you cross the Start/Finish line before 7.30pm you may start your last lap. If at or after 7.30pm you will be called in.
