How good is Graythwaite? Watch the edit from this year’s event right here as competitors got deep down and dirty in the English Lake District. The Northern Championships of 2016 were awesome but for next year it’s moving up a level and will become the Datatag UK National Enduro Championships.

We kept being asked to do something bigger, and here it is a National Championships! We negotiated race use of the private woodlands of the Graythwaite Estate last year building 5 fresh cut stages for the Northern Champs and it was brilliant. An awesome setting and demanding stages, this will be the base for the Datatag UK National Enduro Championships. Held over 3 days the epic course does not just use the Graythwaite estate but also delves deep into Grizedale Forest and takes in both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water. With new stages at Grizedale being progressed with the Forestry commission we’ll be able to keep it fresh and with almost free reign on what we can do at Graythwaite there is no doubt this will be an awesome course at an unmissable event.

Early in the season to fit in with the European EWS events its also a qualifier event for the 2018 EWS season. Format of the event has taken inspiration from a number of EWS events. Friday will see the Grizedale stages open for practice, while Saturday will be for practicing the closer Graythwaite stages. Sunday is race day, with a course around 55km lap and upto 10 stages to crown our champions. Whomever claims the titles on offer here will deserve them. No need to worry about work on the Monday its a bank holiday so you can enjoy our £2/pint ale on Sunday after the race, cheer the winners on the podium and whatever else we think we can squeeze in to the evening’s celebrations. Toilets, bike wash, showers, tech support, as well as catering and an expo of your favourite brands onsite.
