What to expect

Our short, sharp and rather beastly prequel race that happens on the Friday afternoon. Choose to do this and then relax for the weekend OR combine with one of the longer Saturday V races OR combine with Saturday's Beast of Brow to be a part of the Beastly Double! The Tour de France starts with a time trial race and this will use the same format with runners heading off at 15-20 sec intervals in their quest to be crowned the Beast of Beetham. So much fun to be had!
