Dawn to Dusk Enduro – Registration
Up to 4 races run concurrently as part of the Dawn to Dusk Enduro event. Here’s a quick summary to help you choose the right one for you…
A standalone event run on the Saturday morning – designed especially for younger riders, over the age of 10 and under 16 years old – avoiding any extreme sections but still tough enough to provide a challenge.
The start on Saturday will be group starts by classes, with the Senior class leading the first wave starting at 10:00am. The remaining class will then follow after approximately a minute.
Junior class for 10 and 11 year olds.
Intermediate class for 12 and 13 year olds.
Senior class for 14 and 15 year olds.
The race will finish when the chequered flag goes out for the lead rider in the senior class at the two-hour mark.
6 Hour Race
The perfect introduction to endurance racing off-road style, favoured by most first-time riders. The 6 hour race is for solo’s or 2 man teams (clubman only)
The start of the 6 hour enduro will be a Le Mans start, (i.e. a short run to your bike from a standing start) with groups leaving in classes – the first wave starting at 1:00 pm. This means you will need to have your bike on the start line from approx. 12:30 pm.
Once lined up, you will be allowed to warm up your bikes, and then all engines MUST be switched off at 12:55 pm.
12 Hour Race
The Daddy – the original race format from which the whole event takes its name, a real tester for individuals and teams alike. For solo riders, 2 and 3 man teams.
The start of the 12 hour enduro will be a Le Mans (i.e. a short run to your bike from a standing start) start, with groups leaving in classes – the first wave starting at 7:00 am on Sunday. This means you will need to line up your bike on the start line at approx. 6.30am.
Once lined up, you will be allowed to warm up your bikes, and then all engines MUST be switched off at 6:55 am.
24 hour race…
The Beast! The ultimate off-road challenge in the UK. Individuals and teams of up to 3 riders pit themselves against the Mountain, the weather, and their own physical reserves for a whole night and day. The night lap – from the start, is a shorter approx. 7 mile loop running for the initial 12 hours of the race. Good lights are a must! Each rider must also have a red light on their back clothing in case you leave your bike at night.
The start of the 24 hour enduro will be a Le Mans start (i.e. a short run to your bike from a standing start), with groups leaving in classes – the first wave starting on Saturday at 7:00 pm. This means you will need to be on the start line with your bike no later than 6:30 pm.
Once lined up, you will be allowed to warm up your bikes, and then all engines MUST be switched off at 6:55 pm.
The Practice Track
In 2017, we introduced the Practice Track. On Saturday afternoon, you can enter as a pre-race shakedown or just hone your skills! Practice entry will be just £15 per rider (£10 if pre-registered). Times for the Practice Track are 1pm-5pm.
As well as giving you a chance to test out final adjustments and warm-up the joints and muscles, it will ease the wait until start time, plus provide supporters and spectators with something interesting and fun to watch…!
The course will be adjacent to the main starting area for ease of access for riders and spectators alike.
