The Odlo Glentress Seven is TweedLove’s flagship endurance mountain bike event, and firmly established as one of Scotland’s most popular MTB events. It’s a great day’s riding and racing for everyone, with the emphasis on great trails and a friendly, fun atmosphere.

Expect some nice climbs, fantastic singletrack, great descents and a whole lot of fun – you can go as hard, or easy, as you like. The main descent is a total classic and not open for riding the rest of the year. Ride solo or in teams of two or three, the most laps in seven hours wins.

If seven hours of riding isn’t enough challenge (!) you can even do a trail run on the course the evening before. We’ve even added a bitesize 5k trail run NEW for 2018! as well as the 11k course. To sign up for one of our discounted trail runs please see below.

TWEEDLOVE TRAIL RUN …… Discounted entry for GT7 riders!

Meet the Odlo Glentress 11! We know lots of you are trail runners as well as bike riders, and following some great advice from the trail running community (and a very successful first GT11 event last year!), we’re setting up the GT7 course for runners again – the evening before the bike race. For 2018 we have also added a bitesize 5km course!

Event Details

The aim is to complete as many laps as you can in the seven hour time limit. Teams ride in relay – there’s only one team member on the course at any one time. Timing is via an electronic card which is worn by the team member on course. When a rider crosses the lap finish line their time is recorded, and they then pass the card onto the next team member and so on.

Riders can do as many laps as they want/can manage in the time. The transition/timing/ team change-over area is in the event village. The course is marked out all the way round and there are marshals at all key positions.

Riders can go as hard or easy as they like, and there’s always the lure of a nice cake and a bit of a social down at the event village. There’s also a cake and water station at the top of the course.

You must register beforehand (or the evening before) to collect your race number, timing chip and course information.

What you get:

  • Seven hours of top riding with a fab bunch of people
  • The best, most fun* endurance race course in the UK
  • Electronic timing by SI systems
  • Great ‘Free Cake Shop’ feed station, with the most delicious cakes**
  • Miles of awesome singletrack
  • Event village with great food and drink
  • Personalised number boards, with your name/team name
  • The best course medics available
  • On site tech support
