Glentress Seven

Date: Sat 24 Aug, 2024

Venue: Glentress Mountain Bike Trail Centre, Peebles

Scotland’s most popular summer MTB endurance event is returning for 2024 – but it’s going to be a bit different!

New course, new venue & the World Champs event arena

Glentress has been undergoing massive redevelopment and as everyone knows, it very successfully hosted the UCI XC World Championships in August 2023. We’re very pleased to be able to reproduce some of the World Champs buzz with the Glentress 7…

The race will have a new course, with new trails and the unique event village/pits/transition area will be based at the start/finish line of the UCI Cycling World Championships. The event’s start and finish line will be pretty much exactly where Tom Pidcock battled the fastest XC riders in the world, so everyone can enjoy their own Glentress XC hero moment – lap after lap!

Alongside all the new stuff, the heart of the event remains exactly the same – great trail riding, a friendly atmosphere, smiles all round, an event that’s enjoyable for a huge range of abilities, and of course as much pain and effort as you think appropriate! And cake.

Glentress 7 is a great day’s riding and racing for everyone. The course features some nice climbs, fantastic singletrack, great descents and a whole lot of fun. You can go as hard, or easy, as you like. Ride solo or in teams of two or three – the most laps in seven hours wins.
