THE DEEP BURN – RACE SERIES – 2 OF 3

Burn Events brings you a unique race series. You can sign up for just this race or all three. If you complete all three you will achieve Full Burn Status which results in a unique prize and free entry to a future Burn Event of your choosing. The remaining two races are Wednesday 24 May and Wednesday 19th July 2017 at 7pm.

 

The event:

Held at the 417 Flyup Mountain Bike Park, this is an off-road, traffic-free course. The route incorporates grassy hills and natural obstacles such as stones, trees and lots of ups and downs. Uniquely you will also face the bike trails with 'table tops', 'berms' and small 'drop offs' etc. To top it all off there are also breathtaking views from the summit. The race is 5.5k (3.4m) but be under no illusions, this is a tough course! If you want an idea of what to expect then check out our Facebook or Twitter page and view the videos and pictures, or look at our website www.burn.events.

 

The race is signed and marshalled.

 

Post Event:

All runners keep their race numbers and get a bespoke medal. All runners also get a bacon bap and cup of tea or coffee for free in the onsite cafe. Feel free to have a look at the bike park while you're there too. There is food and drink available to purchase for the entirity of the event. ANYONE WHO COMPLETES ALL THREE RACES GETS A DIFFERENT MEDAL FOR EACH RACE, A SPECIAL GIFT PLUS FREE ENTRY TO A FUTURE BURN EVENT OF YOUR CHOOSING.
