The Black Legend Epic, Standard and Short

16th Sep • by Purple Patch Running
Hungerford, West Berkshire, GB

Open your season with this stunning sportive. The Black Legend is the tale of forbidden love, passion and murder, played out on top of the highest and most sacred hill on the Wiltshire Berkshire border and the Black Legend Sportive will take you up this very same hill. Set in the beautiful countryside of the Berkshire, Lambourn and Marlborough Downs, the three well designed, anti-clockwise routes, roll along quiet country lanes passing through picturesque country villages. Each of the three courses starts and finishes at the John OGaunt School in Hungerford.

Also known as "The Hell of The North", it is the biggest 1 day race in professional cycling and you can test yourself over the same course 24 hours before the Pros. One of the easiest races to get to for UK riders, it is also one of the hardest to ride. The cobbles have to be experienced since words will never do them justice. We can ensure you are as prepared as possible. Basing you in Roubaix is ideal for soaking up race weekend atmosphere and seeing the Race.

The Tour of Flanders or Ronde van Vlaanderen, Belguim. Probably the biggest Sportive on the calendar.

Tour of Flanders had its 101st edition in 2017. Today it is one of the five Monuments of cycling and one of the two major cobbled classics along with ParisRoubaix. This race stops Belgium. Fabian Cancellara won in 2014 and 85.7% of the population of the country watched his victory either live or on television!

The Tour of Flanders weekend will offer you the opportunity to ride in the amateur event "We Ride Flanders" 16000 riders tackle the course before watching the Pros on Sunday. Flanders is famous for featuring short, sharp climbs with cobbled sections.

Welcome to the awesome Tour de Mon - the cycle sportive which takes you around the beautiful island of Anglesey.

In 2016 we welcomed over 1400 cyclists to the shores of Newry Beach in Holyhead who all enjoyed a memorable day exploring the roads and scenery of this amazing unspoilt island and 2017 is set to be even bigger and better.

The Tour de Mon is one of the best sportives in the country. The Tour de Mon will take you to the most beautiful and iconic locations on this wonderful island of Anglesey. Boasting possibly the most beautiful coastline in the whole of the UK, Anglesey is one of Britains best kept secrets and we want to share it with you.

The inaugural Round Reading Ultra Marathon (RRUM) takes place on Saturday August 5th, taking in a fabulous multi terrain course that circumnavigates the town of Reading.

Youll have a choice of a 50km route or a 100km route. The course will include a variety of terrain, including flat river and canal towpaths, undulating woodland trails, country lanes and paths through Reading's many urban green spaces.

With feed stations approximately every 10km, you don't need to worry about re-filling water bottles, etc. We'll even take your own nutrition out to the feed stations for you, if you prefer to use your tried and tested food.

As a two-lap course, the 100km route passes through the start/finish at the 50k (halfway) point. On an ultra you can always have a bad day and if it isn't going to plan you have the option of finishing, having completed the 50k, and still receive your medal.

Why not take on the perfect intro to ultra running with the 50km, or challenge yourself for the real race of truth over the classic 100km distance.
