Press Release: 'Ard Rock

'Ard Rock is back, bigger and better than ever before with limited entries open from November 1st

With thanks to the amazing support of both 'Ard Rock competitors and the local community in Swaledale, we’re chuffed to confirm 'Ard Rock is back for 2020 with an action-packed line up of riding, racing and good times. The event will run from Friday July 31st to Sunday August 2nd from the familiar event village in the heart of Swaledale, taking in epic scenery and our trademark rough and rocky singletrack, rebuilt and ‘Arder than ever.

We’ve taken the opportunity to make the stages even more exciting and challenging than they were before, so stand by for the ride of your life!

For those without places, we have a limited number still available and entries are going live at 0700 November 1st at www.ardrockenduro.co.uk. Be quick on the draw to secure yours when the site goes live.

The event village will once again be the hub of the action, hosting an expo area with all the latest kit from the best brands in the sport, demo rides on dedicated loops, top quality food and drink, live music, pump track competition and new attractions like a jump jam for have-a-go heroes ready to go for glory in front of the crowds.

The event village will be stacked with the best bike brands, entertainment and food and drink all weekend long

We’ve also spiced up the Ard Rock Marathon, rebranding it as the Ard Rock Epic to reflect the new course and stages along its 60km route. Whether you’re an old-school XC racing snake, traditional big country rider or an enduro veteran in search of a new challenge, the Epic puts a new spin on the traditional Ard Rock formula to reward all-round riders of all abilities. We’d call it a level playing field of sorts, were it not for the epic nature of the terrain, the tough climbs and challenging singletrack descents!

The new Ard Rock epic. 60km with timed climbs, descents and flat out grinds.

None of this would have been possible without the incredible solidarity shown by Ard Rockers far and wide and we and the local community remain hugely grateful for the support shown. Off the back of that we’re determined to make Ard Rock 2020 the best yet and can’t wait to see you there!

 @fatduke: ah well not so bad then if it hasn't gone up,but still a costly affair,think it was about £30 the first couple of years I did it,or managed to get an entry.But it's a massive event now,can't move for VW campers and Santa Cruz bikes these days,was just a couple of porta Loos in field when it first started.

 @fatduke: Good luck then. Watch out for the unusually tall marshal who rides a Cotic, he's a shifty bugger.

 yeah it's a great event but far too big with too many people for my taste. Most folk love it though. You're not a UK rider if you dont have an Ardrock profile pic on your FB page ;-)
