The Great Racing Welfare Cycle – 16/17 July

Generously sponsored by The Jockey Club, Unibet, Racehorse Lotto and Tattersalls

We’re back with the biggest cycling challenge of the year!

Inspired by last year’s Great Racing Welfare Cycle? We have just the challenge for you!

This year we are incredibly excited to bring the next Great Racing Welfare Cycle Challenge from the home of National Hunt racing, Cheltenham Racecourse.  

The challenge is open to all, and a whole host of racing staff and personalities have already confirmed their involvement, including:

It is set up to be a fantastic day and we can’t wait to see you there!

Teams will start their challenge at 12 noon on the 16th July and leave the racecourse for an undulating, challenging, 30km, beautiful ride through the Cotswolds including climbing the imposing Cleeve Hill to enjoy the breath-taking views across Gloucestershire.  This challenge is based on a team of FOUR people, TWO will be out on the route cycling while TWO rest at the “Riders Camp” based at the racecourse.  The four riders will tag-team day and night for 24 hours finishing at noon on the 17th July, crossing the finishing line to the cheers of their friends and family.  A BBQ for all the riders and supporters will take place on the afternoon of the 17th to celebrate the incredible achievement of all of those who have taken part and supported.
