Venue: Kielder Castle, Northumberland
REMOTE BORDERLAND SETTING - TOUGH 31 MILE LAP - TESTING YOUR BODY, MIND AND BIKE TO THE LIMIT
Delighted to say that the Deadwater 100 will host the 2020 MTB Marathon British Champs. This will be alongside the same grueling rides we had in 2019. You’ll have a choice of entering:
MTB Marathon British Champs 100km (2 laps) - 100 mile race (3 laps) - 100km sportive (2 laps)
You’ll need a British Cycling race licence for the British Champs but the other two are open to anyone with the legs to take them on.
MTB folklore tells a tale of an epic 100 mile bike race that ran at Kielder many years ago. Notorious for breaking bikes and breaking wills this was an stunning test of machine and body in the wilderness of the Northumbrian border lands.
The route consists of a single 31 mile lap that strings together all the best bits of Kielder. Yes you guessed it, twice round for 100km and three times round for the 100 mile. This route makes use of the superb purpose built trails. The route promises to be fun whilst the distance turns it into a huge challenge.
