- Bedgebury Insomnia
It is running, link here and to the Boars club forum which has more infoPosted 5 years agoboriselbrusSubscriber
Yes, it’s all running this year. The only difference is that the last 3 years it was run by the BHF as a charity event, but this year it’s just a normal endurance race.
The course has been slightly altered so it will be all ridable even if it’s really wet. You’ll still get wet riding through puddles of course, but no axle deep mud for sure.
Please enter sooner rather than later though, as unless we get the minimum number by the middle of September we won’t be able to go ahead.

As said by tonertopup, fantastic event, run by the lovely Bedgebury Boars, who for the last 3 years have organised a great event.
And this year it will be much better as no Sponsor money to raise, so it will be a proper race!
Going to try the solo event this year and see how I get on, as for the last two years have been in a mixed team.
Can’t reccomend this race highly enough, sooooo looking forward to it!Posted 5 years ago
After my weekend’s perambulations round the red run I’m v keen to get club mates out to do this.
Now I don’t know if my enthusiasm will wane after Thetford D2D and probably three solid weeks of rain during Oct but hey.
Oh and I presume the start/finish and pit area / ‘camping’ will be in the main car park?Posted 5 years agoleftygirlMember
The course has been designed this year to be as all weather as possible with just a little natural trail, so if it does rain then it shouldn’t turn into a mud fest.
If you are thinking of entering this race then please don’t delay, enter asap as the club need to know numbers.
I have rode in this event for two years now and marshalled and it really is fantastic. Ask anyone who has also done it and they will say the same.
The timing will be done by timelaps as last year, there will be mechanical support available, light charging available at Quench bike shop, floodlighting in the car park area and an all night cafe courtesy of the Pineatery.
