Now entering its fourth year, #supbikerun returns in 2017 with two events. Unlike a swim/bike/run triathlon, the format combines SUP (stand-up paddle boarding), mountain biking and trail running for an event pitched at all abilities.
Each race features two course lengths at each event:
WARRIOR: 3km SUP/15km bike/5km run
BARBARIAN: 6km SUP/30km bike/10km run
Relay options are also included for 2017. Teams can register with 4-8 people and included within the ticket price is the use of one of the giant XL SUP boards. All team members paddle the giant SUP board around the lake before breaking out individually to complete the bike and run trails.
You can save £10 on entry if you book before Thursday 1st December at www.supbikerun.co.uk.
The dates and locations are…
SOUTH WALES – SAT 20TH & SUN 21ST MAY
This venue was the toughest of the 2016 series. Located just outside Pontypool, Llandegfedd is a beautiful reservoir with excellent facilities, on-site camping and super challenging MTB and run trails.
WORKSOP – SAT 2ND & SUN 3RD SEPTEMBER
Set within 3,500 acres of forest, Clumber Park is a new venue for #supbikerun. Located just outside Worksop, the venue has on-site camping and miles of forest single track to explore.
Each #supbikerun event aims to be a mini-festival weekend with on-site catering, camping and free paddle board and mountain bike workshops, and classes delivered throughout the Saturday.
