2017 British Cycling National Mountain Bike Marathon Championships

Nigel Morris, David Kelly and the Manx Mountain Bike Club are extremely pleased to announce that the Manx 100 will be the British Cycling National Mountain Bike Marathon Championship for 2017.

The event will be run over the 100km Manx 100 course, with around 3500m of climbing.

The route is one single lap, taking in most of the Central and Northern trails that the Isle of Man has to offer, with amazing views of the Isle of Man, Ireland and the United Kingdom along the way. The 100 mile option takes into account 61km of further Central and Southern tracks and involves 16,000 feet of climbing.

Manx 2016 saw over 140 riders take on the challenge of the 100 miles, 100 kilometres – and new for 2016 – 50 kilometres (run over the final 50km of the Manx 100 (mile) event. Behind the scenes the management team were in discussion with British Cycling over the 2017 Marathon Championship event.

As a result of these discussions, we are delighted to announce that the outcome was successful and that Manx 100 will be the premier Marathon event for 2017!
