The Hardcore 100 is an unsupported, unmarshalled adventure on the quiet roads, byways and bridleways of the Peak District National Park.
First succesfully run in 2018, the event is back with a bang for 2021. The route is a combo platter of tough climbs, techincal descents and scenery to die for. We’ve changed the course slightly from the first edition to make the it even more fun.
With over 100 km and 2000 metres of ascent, the event is based on the reliability ride format, where not speed, but the ability to successfully complete the course before the event HQ closes at five.
Our aim is to get riders to think for themselves and not only test their riding skills but their ability to navigate a course.
The route is suitable for gravel, cyclocross and mountain bikes with tyres over 32mm wide. We’ve tried to pick a route that is rideable whatever the weather that covers varied terrain. We’ve 30 years experience of riding around this area so hopefully we’ll be able to show you some of our favourite trails that we’ve found over the years.
We have purposely not included any feed stations at the event. We would rather you bought food and drink on route to help our local small businesses and contribute to the communities you are riding through.
However there will be tea, coffee and cake available at the event HQ when you get back from your ride. We think you’ll have earned it by then !
We’ll send you a GPX file with the route details around a week before the event start. This way we can keep you in suspense as long as possible.
