Location and Course

Glengorm Castle, Isle of Mull

The course will be a variant on the Saturday course for Cross at the Castle but will be all to the seaward side of the Castle so no rocky roads or big run ups.

Saturday Night

The dance will start at half seven in the Aros Hall, Tobermory and will be very family friendly till the back of nine when the Black Eyed Peas will let rip and then the full contact celidh dancing will start. There is a licenced bar applied for.

Tickets for non riacers will be £5 and must be booked in advance from the organiser



There will be two or three different routes to have a sociable ride round the forest roads on the North of Mull. These will depart at ten from Tobermory and will all head oout to cafes for lunch and the last ride should be back in Tobermory for about three o'clock at the latest. The routes will be confirmed nearer the time as new roads are getting built just now.


Rules and the other stuff...

  • Did we mention no refunds? But you can pass on your entry to someone else if you cant make it
  • No helmet = no race.
  • Non-racing attachments are fine, as long as they are safe. Cameras are positively welcomed 
  • There will be no pits but spare bikes and wheels can be utilised between races
  • Ther should be a seperate pressure washer off the course for all competitors to use, but it will be scorchio so unnecessary :_)
  • There will be NO PARKING AT THE COFFEE SHOP as it will be open for non cyclocrossers, parking spaces will be allocated nearer the time
  • The race is being run by a small group of volunteers for no profit, and with a huge investment of time and energy. Comments and feedback are positively welcomed (nay encouraged), but please keep them constructive!
  • Anyone wishing to marshall, promotional goods, banners or prizes please get in touch via 
  • All wolves to be kept on leads please. No exceptions!
  • Please give 15 mins at the end to help clear the field so that we all can enjoy the evening
  • Thanks to Suppercross ;-)
