If you’ve ever done the Classic Stinger, you’ll know that mountain bikers generally win in the end.
For this event we’ve tweaked the distances slightly to make it a more event contest between running and riding.

To kick off, you’ll run one lap of the 5km mountain bike course immediately followed by one lap of the 3km Stinger run.
You then come into transition, hop on the bike and go out for 3 laps of the 5km mountain bike course.
After all that, it’s trainers back on and back out to complete one more lap of the 3km Stinger run.

The event will have all the usual Fully Sussed bells and whistles; dodgy music, even dodgier commentary, fantastic catering (Pickled Lemon Co.), results printed after the race and put online that evening.

There’s an event memento for every competitor, and prizes for the top 3 in each category:
Solo male
Solo female
Solo veteran male
Solo veteran female
Male relay pairs
Female relay pairs
Mixed relay pairs

Online entry closes on Wednesday 18th February at midnight.

Entries are limited to 150 competitors, so don’t leave it too late!
