Battle on the Beach

Battle on the Beach

Details

It is hard to believe, but Battle on the Beach will be back for the 6th event and for 2019 it will take place on April 6/7th. As with every year to date we are forced to pick a date where the tides suit, giving the lowest possible tide, which means the fastest sand while the race starts from midday.

Here is what to expect in 2019:
New Date! – April 6/7th will be the 2019 date. With Battle on the Dark on Saturday April 6th and the main Battle on the Beach event on Sunday April 7th.

Rotor Battle in the Dark – We are very excited to welcome Rotor Bike Components as new sponsor for Battle in the Dark. The TT event has become extremely popular over the previous 3 years. The first rider is expected to start at 20:15 and all riders will be set off at 10-20 second intervals. £100 prize for fastest male & female riders with prizes for 10th, 20th, 30th and so on.

Saturday Night Entertainment – With more and more people choosing to make a weekend of event and the move to April (and hopefully warmer nights!) we will have lots going on through the evening with live music and entertainment on Saturday. For those keen to get their beauty sleep it won’t go on too late.

Youth Races – Once again we will have races available for all ages, with U8, U10 and U12 to U14 events taking place on Saturday afternoon.

Ages 14+ can take part in the main event. The new event arena area will mean some fantastic courses will be possible.

What stays the same – Everything that makes the event unique will remain the same. A mass start with 3 laps of a 15km course for all standard categories (2 laps for fun race). All bikes are welcome and all take part in the same race. Mountain bikes, cross bikes, tandems, fat bikes, beach racers and everything in between.
