2012 is Olympic Year....
2012 is Olympic Year, and the Hadleigh Mountain Biking will have a significant impact on our Race HQ and our intended route.
HOWEVER, the date has been set for Sunday 22nd January 2012.
We will be making amendments to all and sundry as the months progress, so please ensure you keep yourself up to date with the race details here, on our website, and on our Face Book page
RACE ENTRIES WILL BE OPEN HERE FROM 1st OCTOBER ish
Thanks for your support.
Will certainly be there!!
One of my all time favourite races.
As long as there will still be mud!!
Great, will be there....again
Mud essential but not as much as 'Flat Foo.ted' likes
Benfleet 15 22nd January 2012
Hadleigh Country Park, Chapel Lane, Hadleigh, Essex, SS7 2PP
We apologise for the change of venue and route for this our Olympic year race, but our HQ has building work ongoing so we have had to move the HQ and start, hence we cannot now offer showers, etc. The race will have a new start and finish area, and partly a new route (how exciting!) and we are hoping to negotiate with the Ranger to block book the parking fee at the HQ. However, at this stage parking fees may apply at the Country Park. Thanks.
Keep up to date with all the info about the race at
