The route is one lap of a specially designed one hundred mile endurance mountain bike race course with just one road crossing, some fire roads, some grass tracks and a surprising amount of challenging, technical singletrack. This is not a race for the faint hearted.

A detailed map of the course is now available in Newcastleton village centre so any potential entrants can take a preview of what will be in store. The closing date for entries is 6pm Friday 28th August.

For visitors who would like the chance to witness this spectacular event, the race starts at 6:30am on Saturday morning with the race winner being due back at 2:30pm.
