The event is non-drafting and you must not ride 2 abreast on the road. The road is not closed to traffic and so you must follow the Highway Code at all times, riding responsibly. The route is adequately signed throughout to guide you and there will be marshals at critical locations. The marshals cannot stop traffic and will not say if it is ‘clear to go’ so you must be responsible for your own safety and check for traffic.


The Run

The 21km run is a flat route on a cycle and footpath along the River Lune. The course is a two loop out and back along the cycle path adjacent to the river Lune. There is a short section to join the loop and return to the finish.
