Course Information:

The 2021 course will be a total of 3 laps (or 2 laps for fun categories), total distance being approximately 45km.
Similar to the previous 3 events, Lap 3 will on a slightly different track after the beach section. This will ensure that the leaders have a clear run to the finish and more relaxed riders have less worry about fast riders approaching.

The lap will have a similar feel to previous years and is comprised of approximately 5km on the beach (all hard sand) 5km singletrack, 5km doubletrack or forest roads. Only 100 metres is in soft sand, on the beach entrance.

Full information

Unfortunately for 2020/21 camping is no longer included within the entry due to changes within the country park that we have no control of.

You can still camp and there are several options:
1 – Purchase a tent camping ticket as an additional extra with your entry. This is per tent pitch, not person. It covers Friday to Sunday and also includes car parking over the weekend (more below). Basic facilities included such as water, portable toilets and showers. You will not be able to park next to your tent, but it will be within eyesight and no more than 100 metres away.
2 – Stay on-site at the Pembrey Country Park campsite. Options for tents, caravans and camper-vans with lots of electric hookups and excellent facilities. Booking is open from Wednesday December 18th and due to the event taking place within school holiday we strongly recommend booking early. The official on-site camping also includes a car vehicle pass for the duration of your stay.
3 – Caravan club site just outside the park gates. More info here.
There will be onsite catering & hot drinks available throughout the weekend.
Unless you are camping, in which case parking is included there is a new parking system and new charges for 2020/21. All day parking on peak dates, which includes the event weekend will be £5.80. Parking is through an ANPR system, meaning it recognises your number plate and then you need to pay before exit. DO NOT FORGET TO PAY.
There is no option to pay at the gate, only at the pay stations within the park.
Due to the park charges we recommend car sharing wherever possible to reduce costs.
