28 Jul - Malvern Hills Rd Gravel Sprint

Description: 28 Jul - Malvern Hills Rd Gravel Sprint

Date: 28/07/2019

This is the inaugural running of the Malvern Hills Rd Gravel Sprint. Used many years ago for Canterbury rally, it has never been used as a gravel sprint so it's an even playing field for all, a rare opportunity. It will be a race in both directions 3.3km each direction. Access by public road is easy from both ends so crews can help their teams easily if required. See the Regs for more info.

No food to purchase at the event but please support the local famous Sheffield Pie Shop on the West Coast rd (~800m from the service area). Prize giving at Sheffield hotel located across the railway tracks on the opposite side of the West Coast rd.
