Chester Rugby Club: Hare Lane, Chester, United Kingdom
For 2023 we are once again returning to Chester Rugby Club and our provisional routes will head south east towards Tattenhall. The Short Route splits towards Newton and Beeston Castle, and the Medium and Long routes continue south towards the main climb of the day up Harthill Lane and on to Whitchurch. From here the Medium Route riders return north via Wrenbury and the long route riders continue south as far as Weston where they are treated to another leg sapping climb before heading north at Heathcote via Market Drayton for the easier second-half of the ride
2022 entry fees are £37.50 for the 55 and 83 mile routes, £27.50 for the 30 mile rout, and £15 for Under 16s. There will be an online booking fee on all entries.
