“The sense of accomplishment that invades you at the finish line you crossed is beyond imagination.”
“Much more than a cycling event, Race Across UK is a human and sporting adventure committed to sustainability and inclusivity.”
We know it’s a long time to wait, but let’s look on the bright side. You can imagine many roads and places you would like to ride in… We will unveil our wonderful maps in February, it will be worth the wait 😉
We want you to feel good during your amazing journey so checkpoints will be provided with: food and drinks, shower and towels, toilets, an area to sleep, mechanical assistance (at some checkpoints)
A GPX file will be provided closer to the event for you to download and you must follow this route. If you leave the route at any point (e.g. to rest or for resupply) you must rejoin the route at the point which you left it. You will also be provided with a GPS tracker as part of your entry which will allow the organisers to track you (and your friends & family to follow you!)
The road remains open to traffic at all times. We ask you to remain vigilant and to respect the rules of the road during the event for your safety.
If the event is cancelled by something outside our control as organisers (e.g. Covid restrictions, Force Majeure) riders will be offered a variety of options by the organisers (deferral, transfer, partial refund) which will be confirmed in due time.

Race Across UK 12 rules for a fun and safe ultra-ride
The above is an outline summary of the rules to allow an understanding of the event. A more detailed document will be provided closer to the event start date.
Race Across UK is a large undertaking across several countries and over a substantial period of time. Provide support at a checkpoint, help the riders collect their bibs at the start, meet them at the finish, provide refreshments locally enroute, offer a venue as a checkpoint. Whatever you can provide and however you can support, we’d love to hear from you!
