Race start is 8pm and as you’d expect that brings the event to an 8am finish

as a bacon sarnie and a coffee).
The course will be 11km of Newnham finest trails with the usual great mix of
flowing singletrack, steady climbs and the occasional river crossing, with some
sections being floodlit to add to the atmosphere and offer better viewing for
the venues array of wildlife.
