- Sleepless in the Saddle – Course?
It’s fairly flat, most of the climbing are draggy rises rather than grovels. It’s mostly a mixture of tight singletrack through woods and tracks along the side of fields.
It’s actually quite sapping if you’re going for it as there’s nowhere really to take a break simply because there’s not much in the way of altitude change.
And yeah, it’s not much like fun in the mud but Mayhem and SITS can’t both be awful in the same year so it’ll be fine.

ABout 8 miles I reckon. There’s a rel rotty section which’ll be fun if it’s wet.
I really enjoy the course – if you’re in a team of 4, you should be able to give it some beans each lap. As said above, most of the long (for SITS) climbs are alongside field edges, but there is also the odd bombhole and steep little nasty climb to keep you on your toes.
If it’s dry, it is very fast. Been lucky so far and never had a wet one – even managed to miss the hour or 2 of wetness last year!Posted 7 years agoHellsSubscriber
Just back from Thunder Run at Catton Park. I’ve no idea how the course we ran will compare with the SiTS course but the ground was actually quite dry. There are a few sticky bits in the woods, but overall I’d say it is in good condition, no sign of any mud at the moment!Posted 7 years ago
