The Black Legend is the tale of forbidden love, passion and murder, played out on top of the highest and most sacred hill on the Wiltshire/Berkshire border. The Black Legend Sportive will take you up this very same hill! Set in the beautiful countryside of the Berkshire, Lambourn and Marlborough Downs, the three well designed, anti-clockwise routes, roll along quiet country lanes passing through picturesque country villages. 

EPIC (80 Miles), STANDARD (65 Miles) or SHORT (45 Miles) courses.

Each of the three courses starts and finishes at the John O'Gaunt School in Hungerford, a 10 minute drive from Jct 14 on the M4. Or if you prefer to come by train it's a 5 minute cycle from Hungerford train station.

Event village with plentiful parking. Full and clear route marking. Manned feed stations on each course. Electronic chip timing & Immediate results at the finish. Sweeper wagon & First Aid. Finisher's medal. Hot food and drink to buy at the start and finish. Event photography. Pre- and post-event massage.

2015 feedback: "Just a note to thank all involved in the preparation, organisation and delivery of the event yesterday. It was excellent, well-worth the tough day out and all those who worked on the event were so supportive and enthusiastic. Others could learn a lot from the way this was run.  Please pass on my thanks to them, it was one of the best events ridden"
