Osprey 12 MTB Race


The Osprey 12 is a 12 hour lapped mountain race on Kielder’s blue graded Osprey route.  The plan was to make the 2018 event a one-off but given all the excellent feedback it would be a shame not to bring it back.  With a minor tweak to parking (no reversing!) the route is just a small change on 2018. 

Regarded by many as the best of the many trails at Kielder this route has something for everyone. Singletrack in abundance that flows nicely up and down through the trees in large sections, some tough forest track climbs which allow for passing.  There will be no quagmire for people to enjoy like they did in 2018 – firm surfaces only. The whole event will take place in the inner working of the forest with an 11.8km lap and 320 metres of ascent/descent.  Vehicles (1 per team) will be placed on a forest track which results in a key parameter before entering: vehicles need to be car/van width so as to not block a forest track.  Sorry, no ma-hoo-ssive motorhomes.  Max of 100 vehicles/teams can ba handled at the event.  All event apparatus will be brought into the forest and once in place everyone will be there for the duration.
