CLIC24 raises another £40K for charity

CLIC24 has now raised £110,000 for charity

This weekend Somerset’s Mendip Hills played host to the UK’s only charity 24 hour MTB event. 2006 was the fourth year of CLIC24 and it looks like it’s matured into a popular early-season endurance event. CLIC24’s charitable and staunchly non-competitive nature seems to make it a “friendlier” proposition than some of the bigger 24 hour races, and the organisers are keen to encourage a relaxed atmosphere – live music, bonfire parties, all that stuff.

The ten-mile course featured 300m of climbing and descending per lap and a healthy serving of Mendip singletrack. The assembled teams from across the UK managed to cover 2,250 laps between them for a total of 22,500 miles of riding. And of course all the riders gather sponsorship with the proceeds going to children’s cancer and leukaemia charity CLIC Sargent – the 2006 event looks set to raise £40,000, which would bring the event’s total contribution over the years to an impressive £110,000.
