Effingham Adventure RaceEffingham, Surrey, GB

Test your navigation and strategy by entering one of the five off-road adventures we have organised. Using a waterproof 1:25,000 OS map which we provide, navigate trails and hills on foot and bike to collect as many check points as you can in the set time. You plan your own strategy and route, deciding how many CPs you want to visit and in what order. You will lose 1 point for each 30s you are late coming back. All checkpoints are worth 10 points each. Distance covered depends on how many checkpoints are visited, and depends entirely on your level of fitness, as well as your running/biking and map reading skills.

4 hour LONG Adventure Race - 4 hours, navigate to as many checkpoints as possible within the time. Starting on foot, there will be one transition to Mountain Bikes.

2 hour SHORT Adventure Race- 2 hours, navigate to as many checkpoints as possible within the time. Starting on foot, there will be one transition to Mountain Bikes.

2 hour Trail Running Race - 2 hour Trail Run only, navigate to as many checkpoints as possible within the time.

1 hour Mini Trail Running Race - 1 hour Trail Run only, navigate to as many checkpoints as possible within the time. Ideal for families and athletes who are less confident about their navigation skills, as the Checkpoints are closer to one another than in the other events.

2 hour MTBO Adventure Race - 2 hours, ride your mountain bike and navigate to as many checkpoints as possible within the time.

Cold. Wet. Dark. Theres something slightly mad about the mountain biker who takes on a 24 hour race. How about winter in Kielder to tickle your fancy? Solo, pairs or quads. This competitive event will give you the chance to keep your cycling mo-jo going and challenge yourself in what can be some severely testing conditions. Bring supporters or bring your team mates and spend the weekend out on the course as you summon up the strength of mind and body to keep going.

What you need to know about mountain biking

Mountain biking is riding bicycles off-road (as opposed to Road Cycling events) and often over rough terrain, using specially designed bikes with features designed to enhance durability and performance. Mountain biking can generally be broken down into multiple categories: cross country, trail riding, all mountain (also referred to as “Enduro”), downhill, freeride and dirt jumping. However, the majority of mountain biking falls into the categories of Trail and Cross Country riding styles.

Find the right Mountain biking event for you

Mountain bikers ride off-road trails such as singletrack, back-country roads, fire roads, and often venture to ski resorts that stay open in the summer for such activities. Because riders are often far from civilisation, there’s a strong ethic of self-reliance in the sport. Riders learn to repair broken bikes and flat tires to avoid getting stranded. Many riders carry a backpack, including water, food, tools for trailside repairs and a first aid kit in case of injury. Group rides are common, especially on longer treks. Map navigation skills will come in handy.

Here at Let’s Do This we want to help you find exactly the right event. By working with some of the most renowned Mountain Bike Race organisations in the space, we’ve got a great selection of epic challenges below.
