This event has two distances 50km and 100 km from two start points Rugby and Towcester and riders complete the same 100km route simultaneously. The website www.challengingtimes.org.uk contains all the details of the event and this year a new distance of 50km from the Towcester start point is being introduced. The routes are undulating and pass through some of the most scenic countryside in Warwickshire and Northamptonshire and a reasonable leel of fitness is required. All participants who complete the routes within 6 hours (both 50 and 100 km routes) will receive a "Certificate of Achievement" although it is stressed this is not a race and times will not be posted for the finishers.
An on course photographer will be on hand to take pictures of the riders which can be purchased via the website www.challengingtimes.org.uk.
