This event is brand new and with the backing of the Parks Trust we have been able to get the use of the World Cup Cyclocross Circuit at Campbell Park as part of the cycle course. The run is fast and flat ... the bike route is certainly not either! A real shock to the system as proved when the World Cup Cyclocross event came to Milton Keynes a few years ago.

Many of you may be asking, “what exactly is Cyclocross?” well in basic terms it’s a race on non-paved roads, so picture a duathlon in the city with an off road cycle route (a bit muddy…maybe a lot muddy), partnered with a fast flat run – it sounds pretty cool right?

This is an event we are super excited about and wanted to give everyone the chance to take part, so we’ve got three distances for you to choose from. For the novices out there, who are just looking to dip their toe in the world of duathlons (and cyclocross) there’s the Taster Trail. For those who already have some experience or are using this event for a spot of training, the Tough Town distance is the one for you. Then for those of you who are looking to go all out and smash out a PB, the City Epic is your ultimate challenge for 2019. You can enter as an individual or even better, why not get your mates involved?
