Cyclothon UK returns to Brands Hatch on Thursday 7th September 2017!
Cyclothon UK is a team relay, road cycling endurance race round the Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit. Charities, corporations and individuals are encouraged to enter a team of 4, 6 or 8 riders to challenge themselves and each other in a relay event of 8 or 12 hours of road cycling endurance around the famous F1 track at Brands Hatch.
Fantastic prizes are up for grabs, as hundreds of cyclists of all abilities will race the iconic closed circuit of the official 2012 Paralympic Road cycling venue. Ride alongside the sporting teams competing for the Home Nations Challenge Cup. For the last 4 consecutive years, Team Dragons have claimed the trophy thanks to Welsh Rugby riders Alix Popham, Colin Charvis, Shane Williams, Ryan Jones, Barry Davies, Peter Rogers and Rhys Williams. Team Jocks and Team Bulldogs have yet been unable to catch the Welsh so look out for the likes of Mike Tindall, Lee Mears, Shaun Perry, Catherine Spencer, Craig Chalmers, Hugo Southwell, Scott Hastings and more returning to represent the proud face of their nations. The force is strong with those Dragons. Who will make the difference next year? 2016 riders enjoyed a surprise visit by double Olympic silver medalist, Jazz Carlin.
Set yourself a fundraising goal and contribute to the tens of thousands of pounds raised for various causes every year, or just come together to ride in a team challenge. For the ultimate endurance test, a solo rider category (8 or 12 hours) is open also.
