The Marin Roughride 2009, June 14th

by Ben Haworth 5

This year’s Marin Roughride is on Sunday June 14th, one week later than 2008. Marin are providing spot prizes and a test fleet which will be available from Saturday lunchtime onwards. Torq are on board with drinks and a stand.

The event is a great ride across the open hills of the Welsh borders and attracts riders from all over the country and abroad. The route is across open moorland tracks available for the event by express permission of some really nice landowners which allows the the smallest proportion of road for any single loop off road event in England and Wales.

The atmosphere is delightfully laid back and welcoming. The marshalls are really friendly and helpful. The family friendly campsite is on the edge Hergest Ridge, above the tiny market town of Kington on the welsh border and has wonderful views of the surrounding hills.

The event costs £27.50 for advance entry, which includes camping, event tee shirt and post ride meal, courtesy of Wilfs.

  1. i’m up for it.. did it last yr

  2. Yep, and me. Have done it for the last two years. The toughest enduro I’ve done. It’s nails.

  3. Hope they have arranged great weather like last year!

  4. Haven’t done this for a few years. Has the route changed much?

    Definately a great atmosphere, and the longer route is pretty tough.

  5. I signed up at the start of the year. It’ll be my third in a row. Just have to get tyre choice right this year, something narrow and fast rolling.
