There’s no rest for the events team at Singletrack – no sooner have we got the Shimano Singletrack Weekender out of the way, than we’re onto Singletrack Sleepless in the Saddle.
This festival of all things 24-hour race shaped takes place in just a couple of weeks (4-5th August 2012), at Catton Park nr. Burton on Trent. It’s an excellent event to pop your 24-hour race cherry with, if you’ve not been to one before. The course is fun but relatively flat and there are categories for solos, mixed and single-sex teams, as well as a chilled-out atmosphere.
If you’ve not got your entry in yet then you’ll find the forms here:
And if you’ve already entered (smart cookie that you are…) then we’ve popped the event info manual here for you to download and peruse at your leisure:
Last year there was sunshine and though we can’t promise that for certain this year (we might have used it all up at the Weekender), if it does rain we’ll be suffering along with you. The Singletrack office are fielding two womens teams, the Gritty Kitties and the Crumpets, though we’ve yet to hear if any of the boys are going to step up to the plate for a proper office podium scrap.
