With just 4 weeks to go before the Singletrack7, more news of this highly anticipated event has been made official.
If you’re familiar with Enduro6, then you are going to love Singletrack7. The event will be held on 14th May at Caton Park and is basically a 7-hour endurance XC race featuring a mix of natural and man-made obstacles for riders to navigate.
Some of the features that riders can look forward to include an alcohol themed shortcut, various objects to bunny hop, water traps and something to do with foam?…
We’re pushing the boat out with Singletrack7 and want to make it one of the best events of the year, and with the help of our sponsors we think we’re on the right track!

So what is the Singletrack7?
In a nutshell, it’s an XC endurance race for pairs and soloists. Racers compete to complete as many laps of the 6km course as possible within the allotted time. The course has been designed to be fast and engaging making the most of the trails at Catton Park. Expect a mix of terrain with woodland singletrack, fast fireroads, tasty little climbs as well as the much loved Bluebell Woods descent. The course has been set up to be suitable for anyone that is at home on a mountain bike – plenty of fun stuff to get your teeth stuck into but nothing so technical that the more novice rider can’t get down safely.
