Gorrick G25 Anniversary Events this Autumn

by Jane Lucas, 06 Sep 17.

When we organised our first mountain bike event in 1992 at Crowthorne Wood, we had no idea that we’d still be running events 25 years later. At the time the sport was new and no one knew how it would take off. Over the years there’ve been great times and tough times but, with your support we’re still here, so it only seems right to mark the 25 years with two unique events this Autumn.

G25 #1 is on Sunday 8 October at one of our military venues (TBC) and is an XC endurance event.

What to expect: a classic 5 mile XC Endurance course, full event facilities, medals for all participants, plenty of trophies.

***Lots more categories = lots more podium spots to be won***

Age category defined by your age on 31 December 2017.

  • 5 hour Male categories (£30): ages 16-20, 21-25, 26-30, 31-35, 36-40, 41-45, 46-50, 51-55, 56-60, 61-65, 66-70, 70+
  • 5hr Female categories (£30): 16-30, 31-44, 45+
  • 2hr Male categories (£27): 16-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
  • 2 hour Female categories (£27) 16-30, 31-44, 45+

Ride for: 2 hours starting at 9.50am or 5 hours starting at 10am.

Winners: Laps need to be completed by the finish time to count, and the podium presentations will take place soon afterwards.

How to enter: Entry for this event is by ONLINE PRE-ENTRY (closes late on 4 October) on xcracer. Event details and updates are also on the Gorrick Facebook.

The second event, G25 #2 is on Sunday 5 November at Crowthorne Wood, and is a normal Gorrick XC races event but with a Team of 3 relay 1 lap Sprint at 2pm for cash prizes – an email will follow soon.
