Event - Viking Challenge 2010

3 October 2010

On Sunday 3rd October we held our Annual Viking Challenge charity off-road cycle event. Nearly 900 cyclists took part despite the rain.

As well as coping with the weather, riders also had to navigate a diversion to the normal 'Viking Way' course. The Viking Way track is temporarily closed to allow conservation work to be done. But even this didn't slow riders down much.

The first rider to return to return to school was Claire Beazley from Leicester, who completed the 30km route in 2 hours 9 minutes. Claire who had never done the Viking Challenge before finished covered in mud and declared 'it was really good fun'.
