CRC Marathon Dates Announced for 2012

by 0

We’ve just had dates in for next year’s 2012 CRC Marathons. Not got your 2012 wall planner yet? We have…

We hope this is a 'before' photo...

Here are the unadulterated details from Michael Wilkens:

“The autumn is starting to make an appearance and we have been working hard since the last round of the 2011 series to tie down locations and dates for the 2012 Chain Reaction Cycles Mountain Bike Marathon Series powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport.

So here the dates and locations for the 2012 series
7-8th April 2012 Builth Wells (Central Wales)
Saturday: Night Marathon – Sunday: MTB Marathon

19-20th May 2012 Selkirk (Scottish Borders)
Saturday: Road Sportive – Sunday: MTB Marathon

14-15th July 2012 Marshbrook (Shropshire)
Saturday: Road Sportive – Sunday: MTB Marathon
Saturday: MTB Marathon – Sunday: Road Sportive

15-16th September 2012 Ruthin (North Wales)
Saturday: Night Marathon or Road Sportive (TBC) – Sunday: MTB Marathon

All the events will be double events again in 2012 with either a night marathon or a road sportive being run on the Saturday followed by the MTB marathon on Sunday. The road sportives will have two distances to choose from and the MTB Marathon four.

Sunshine guaranteed (perhaps)

The only exception to this rule and a try out for 2012 is the Abergavenny (location TBC – surely near Abergavenny – Ed) round in August which will have the MTB Marathon on Saturday followed by the road sportive on Sunday. The Saturday evening will see a live band, bar on site and a BBQ for the riders and spectators. So we will hopefully have pretty much everybody staying over and enjoy the weekend.

We will update the website with all the new features and the ever so important entry facilities by the end of December at the latest. Please keep you eyes on the website and hopefully see you all in 2012.”
