This is where the Burn Series began with the first ever Burn 6 hour in Cardiff in 2010. Now it's the only Adventure Race in the UK which is 100% off road. You will have 6 hours to find as many check points as you can on foot and bike and do a short kayak. You will experience incredible world class single trail, far reaching views over to Exmoor and get to ride through extensive forestry land. It's not for the faint hearted and good navigation skills are needed!
Briefing at 08:15. Mass start at 08:30. Last finish at 14:30. Prize Giving at 15:30. We ask that you arrive at registration 30 minutes prior to the start.
