A special 45km loop (measured in country miles) with 7 Alpine-style stages on natural rock-strewn terrain and practice on Friday.


The Ard Rock Enduro takes place on 100% natural, rock-strewn and rough terrain only rideable in the event. You’ll ride ancient trails and paths with more flowing, steep and technical riding under your wheels than you can shake a stick at. The entire route will be purpose marked for the event and offers a ‘once only’ opportunity to hit up some unique natural rocky zones. But be warned, the Ard Rock stages contain a mixture of flat-out fast gullies, off-road tracks, steep rocky chutes and technical single tracks that demand a good level of skill and fitness…

Saturday’s Ard Rock Enduro is the headline event for competent riders who care about finishing positions and posting the fastest times. It’s much bigger and different from your average Enduro, but setting each rider off separately or in their own groups at intervals gives you the best chance of putting in a top time.


The Ard Rock Enduro will take place on Saturday with the opportunity to practice a limited course on Friday, meaning you’ll be racing an exciting mix of known and unknown stages. If you’re in a team or a group of mates, enter a group code when registering so we can do our best to ensure you are all set off together.

Start times for the race and registration will be sent to all riders two weeks before the event. Transitions are flexible, so you can ride with your mates and expect to be out on the course anywhere from 4 hours plus, covering around 3000 meters of combined climbing and descending. For safety and timing reasons, a cut-off time of 5 hours 30 minutes will be enforced.
