Cannock Chase Summer Classic

Cannock Chase Summer Classic – The Hibbs Lupus Trust

Cannock Chase Summer Classic - The Hibbs Lupus TrustWe are proud to announce The Hibbs Lupus Trust as the official charity partner for the Cannock Chase Summer Classic 2012.

Following the success of the Midlands XC Cannock Chase Classic back in March, Run & Ride are once again promoting a Mountain Bike event for all on one of the best places to ride in the UK, Cannock Chase!

Instead of the standard categories Run & Ride are going to try something a little different and touch more straight forward. So for the upcoming event the categories will be:

Under 10′s, Under 12′s, Juvenile, Youth & Junior:
All stay the same

The rest of the categories are removed and replaced with:

Fun & First Timers:
People who love racing but aren’t necessarily fit, or those who have never raced before. An entry level race  where people can get a taste for what MTBing is all about. Race distance will be around the 1hr mark. Male & Female categories.

For those guys who have a good level of fitness but wouldn’t make the top ten in a normal Vets, Masters or top 5 in a Sports race.  Race time around 1.15 – 1.30. Male and Female categories.

Elite & Racing Snakes:
These guys are the cream of the crop. Top riders out of the Vet, Sport, Masters, Experts and Elite. The ones that make everything look easy! Race time around 1.30 to 1.45. Male and Female categories.

Which will you ride? Who will you come against? There are new battles to be ridden!
