- How to set up an off road sportif?
I am apparently considering setting up such a thing in the Winchester Downs. It would be easy to create a fun route with lots of legitimate singletrack. But how to set it up? I even have a Facebook page that was originally for a failed attempt to gauge interest in building a trail centre nearby. So, any ideas upon who to work with and what’s needed?
I have a local shop interested in running a feed station, and the local CTC are active.
I would like it to become an annual event too, plus proceeds to go to SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOL that supports children from all over HampshirePosted 4 years agoAngus WellsSubscriber
Using experience of off road running events: You need to be proactive about rights of way use. It is worth contacting county or parish councils to let them know that you will be using rights of way for an event. They can help smooth the way with landowners when there are mass use of public rights of way and may help iron out problems before they turn into disputes. Publicity about the route and along the route in advance warns other users. A bit of leg work but worth it in the long run.Posted 4 years ago
