The Wakefield Hospice Sportive: The Dark Peak
Sponsored by SB Wakefield
Join our incredible Dark Peak Challenge an Extreme Road Cycling Challenge for the very brave!
We have three routes which take in the highlights of the 2014 Tour de France Yorkshire Route. The event sponsored by SB Wakefield starts in Wakefield and heads out to Holmfirth to take on the Holme Moss Climb, Snake Pass and the The Strines. The punishing 72 mile route was praised by cyclist last year for be a gruelling but highly satisfying challenge.
There are two alternative routes you can take on the – 45 mile route which returns to Wakefield following Holme Moss or the moderate 23 mile route which takes in the beautiful local countryside while offering a high level of challenge. The cost of taking part are:
· Extreme Route 72 Miles: £25
· Hard Route 45 Miles: £20
· Moderate Route 23 Miles: £15
All cyclists that succeed in completing the challenge will receive a souvenir t-shirt. We provide chip timing for the route as well as stocked feed stations, mechanical support and a fully sign posted course. Nuffield Health kindly provide free entry to their changing rooms and spa facilities for everyone who finished.
Our Peak Challenge was a huge success in 2013 with more than 300 cyclist taking part and raising £16,000. Thank you to everyone who took part and we hope you will join us again in 2014.
