The WIW Midland Monster
29/04/2012 - Uttoxeter Race course, Staffs - Sportive
This is the only truly Midland based Classic in the making, starting and finishing at the Uttoxeter Race course
The route loops south before climbing into the lower Peak District and then follows a rolling route back from Ashbourne to complete the 97 miles. This is a tough test with a combination of relentless climbs and the distance will test everyone's fitness. We also offer a shorter 67 mile shorter route with the odd tester to stretch your legs.
There will be two feed stations covering both routes to keep nutrition levels topped up and a drink and meal awaits all finishers.
Signing on is available from 7.30am to collect your numbers and goodies. The long route starts in small groups between 8 - 9 am and up to 9.30am for the shorter ride. Both routes will be timed and we offer a roving mechanical service to keep you on the ride which is also backed up by a broom wagon should you need it. Our well proven routing system will again show the way with arrows and warning signs to keep you safe and on course.
2011 proved very popular and as we are restricted to 600 entries, 2012 offers a field of 1000 as we have no parking problems as previous years, we advise early entry to guarantee your place on this Classic.
We look forward to seeing you in May
