We’ve just had news from the organisers of the popular 12 hour Dusk Til Dawn endurance race. They’ve got eight hundred of a possible thousand places filled and there are just 17 solo male entries left for the event taking place on the 2nd and 3rd October. Entries will close on the 3rd of September regardless of whether it’s full or not and there’s no opportunity to enter on the day, so best get a move on if you want to race through the night on Thetford’s swoopy singletrack.
This year’s event will run from the High Lodge Visitor’s Centre allowing a whole host of extra comforts, the Centre remaining open all night offering hot foods from the café and access to indoor toilets to supplement the typical port-a-loos. Bike-Art will also be open for the duration of the event to provide bike product sales and support. Finally, there will be water available on site, a bike wash, and free parking for all competitors.
Solo entries cost £37, pairs are £64, three-person teams are £96, and four-person teams are £128. Every racer will receive a 10th Anniversary Marin D2D T-shirt to commemorate a decade of night time mountain bike racing too.
New race sponsor, Exposure Lights, will be offering lights for hire through select participating
For anyone looking to clean out their spares bin, there will be a table-top sale in conjunction with this event. The sale will take place on Saturday from 1300-1600. Tables for this sale will cost £5 and you need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a table.
Registration will end Friday, 3 September or when they reach 1000 riders, whichever comes first.
