Your organiser

The Race Organiser creates outstanding opportunities for people to bring out their best run, swim or cycle performance.

We seek out the most inspiring and rewarding locations, develop race routes and event formats, and create a brilliant atmosphere and race day experience – offered at the best possible value. We don’t think it’s ok to ask people who are aspiring to do amazing things to pay huge sums of money, so we charge as little as we can afford, rather than as much as we can get away with.

Route description
Route description

Both courses start and finish at The Buckingham School, London Road, Buckingham MK18 1AT.

Cycling through the Aylesbury Vale offers the chance for some beautiful scenery on quiet, undulating country roads. Both rides head north together towards the magnificent grounds of Stowe School, before splitting and turning south through the gently rolling lands of Buckinghamshire. The courses reunite at Steeple Claydon, before finishing together again at The Buckingham School.

Signage:

All turnings will be marked with a large blue arrow on a yellow background. Specific hazards, such as steep hills and sharp bends will be signed with red letters on a yellow background.

Course split and rejoin:

The Course Split will be clearly marked with a ‘COURSE SPLIT’ sign at the junction and another sign after the split confirming which course you are now on.

  • The course split comes at 8 Miles, just before Preston Bissett hamlet
  • The courses rejoin at 32M (Standard)/12M (Short) just before Steeple Claydon
  • Both courses finish on the same route between Steeple Claydon & Buckingham

Please remember that signs can be tampered with on events such as these, therefore it is highly recommended that you download the ROUTE MAPS and bring them with you as back- up.
