Series: The Stinger 2014

The Stinger always set out to be more of an even contest between the rider and the runner, the Mountain Bike course at Newnham means those with the riding skills get reward and the awesome final Stinger run always gives the strong runner a chance to make up lost ground.

This event is limited to 150 entrants and has sold out in the past 2 years, so don't be disappointed, enter today!

The event consists of a great 5 km run through the attractive Newnham Park woodlands, then a fast, exciting 20 km ride through Newnham's awesome off road trails and finally the 3 km boggy, wet, traumatic Stinger run which will be etched on your soul for years to come.

If you don't fancy either the running or riding bit then the relay pairs is just right for you.
