Leveret 50km 2019

Leveret 50km (31 miles) Sunday 18th August 2019

It is a self-led ride and the route is provided after booking. It’s not a race but a challenge to follow and complete a route of 50 km (31 miles). The title of the event comes from the story of the hare and the tortoise! A leveret is a young hare. Some will inevitably zoom off fast but some will take it at a slower pace and that’s fine. Enjoy the lovely countryside.

Check in starts at 9 am for a 9.30 start, the finish will be open until 3.45 pm. At the end you will be greeted and signed in at Poppies tea rooms and awarded a certificate.

If you find you are unable to finish in time please phone or text one of the numbers on the route sheet to let them know.
