CRC MTB Marathon Series only four weeks away…

Ahh, springtime. The return of birdsong, the sprouting of plantlife and of course, the return of the Chain Reaction Cycles MTB Marathon Series (powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport). The first round of the longrunning series will be hitting Builth Wells, Mid Wales, in just four weeks time, on the weekend of the 9/10th April.

As is traditional, the Exposure Lights Big Night Out will kick off the weekend of racing with a 43km long night marathon. Starting from Penmaenau Caravan Park, the night ride will have around 1,105m of climbing and should take around 3-5 hours to complete.

The following Sunday daytime will see the 75km Long Distance ride (with a wince inducing 2,150m of climbing) plus 53km Half Marathon and 31km Mini Marathons if that’s a little much for you.

Riders who are going for the weekend double are promised plenty of variety between both courses an will also get rewarded with a £15 discount on the overall price. The event base has lots of hard standing, perfect access roads and facilities and is only a very short walk from the centre of Builth Wells. There is a bar on site as well. You can find the details on the both events at the www.mtb-marathon.co.uk site, along with all the course details.

The MTB-Marathon guidebook is now available and if you are keen to get a free copy then you just need to send the MTB Marathon team your full UK postal address and they’ll send a copy.
