Hit The North - 12 Hour Enduro Race What started out as a bit of a moan between a few Manchester based mountain bikers has morphed into a race. Hit The North will take place on July 19th 2008 (subject to getting all the paperwork tidied up - but we are progressing nicely with everyone involved). We have… • An 8.4 mile loop with woodland single track, the biggest bomb hole in Christendom, very fast bits, a tunnel, some tarmac (you will be grateful after a few hours), a water splash, bridges, some cobbles to test your fillings and over 1000 ft of climbing to test your legs. Basically a bit of everything, all of which can be ridden in bad weather. We also have… • A campsite. • Proper loos that flush. • Showers that aren't minging. • Excellent catering. • Chip timing. • Live pictures of the bomb hole beamed back to screens in the campsite (technology permitting) • A DJ to play tunes at the after race party. • All of the obvious stuff such as marshals, first aid, insurance etc... And all only 10 minutes from junction 17 of the M60 in North Manchester. Categories will be teams of 4, pairs and solo. Race time will be 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. All proceeds will be donated to the Leeds Children's Heart Fund. Any one fancy it? Also if you want to get involved in any sort of capacity or even become a sponsor get in touch.
