An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides the back-drop to the Shropshire Mynd and Little Switzerland (Church Stretton) provides the gateway to our latest Killer Mile climb. Featuring the ULTRA 89 mile and Espresso 50 mile routes, both ascend the phenomenal, fully closed climb of the Long Mynd Burway (as previously used on the National Hill Championships). From here the ESPRESSO route heads south, whilst the ULTRA route sets up the challenges of Stiperstones, a double ascent (long & gentle then short & steep) of Long Mountain before heading south to take in the climb up Kerry Hill followed by a 20 mile descent to release the leg muscles off! This is a sportive delivered by KILO TO GO - we go further.
Based in the lovely setting of Ludlow Racecourse at the southern end of Shropshire, the event makes the most of this hidden gem of a county.
Our Ultra route maybe more challenging than most but the rewards are even greater! Watch out for the double ascent of Long Mountain!

U16 ride for free
For 2016, a limited number of Under 16s can ride for free, as long as they are accompanied by a fee paying adult. The adult needs to enter the event, create a pre-paid group, and then add the U16 route option to the group - there's no need to choose a distance (it will show as 0). Once everything is confirmed, share your E-Invite with the U16 rider. We do not post rider packs out to U16 riders - they will need to pick the pack up on the day from the registration desk accompanied by the adult.
