Proposed 80km route for the 80th Anniversary.


A digital map is now available thanks to Graeme Hughes from manxtimingsolutions

Hello all,

Hopefully everyone is enjoying their riding as the year begins to come to a close. Firstly the propose route for our 80th anniversary club run can be found at the bottom of this article. Secondly it would be massively appreciated if people could let our club chairman, Jim Cottier, know if they are attending prior to the event. His contact details can be found here.

The ride will take place on the 6th October 2018. Registration and start from Manx Harriers Clubhouse (NSC). Starting from 09:00. In the mean time we have the Colin Nelson Memorial Mountain TT. Provisionally rearranged to the 23rd of September.

Additional notes for prospective entrants: The ride will be charged at £10.00. This is to cover the charge of the refreshments at the cafe stop in Ballabeg. As well as an Anniversary bidon, and most importantly the remainder of the money is going towards The James Berry Fund.

On the day this route explanation and a map will be available. A map may also be provided earlier than the day of the event; however this is not guaranteed so for now please familiarise yourself with the written description below.
