Wednesday 18th May is the first night of the Jubilee race series, a 5 mile road race on scenic undulating roads around Rivington.
Jubilee Race Series, registration at Rivington Village Club
Dates: Series of 4 races on Wednesdays – May to August at 7.30pm
Further details: JubileeRoadRaceSeries
Distance/Ascent: 5 miles 120 metres
Terrain: Road – Road shoe recommended
What you need to know: Two laps with a flat start with a hill in the middle. 200 metre finishing straight is off road and flat, perfect for practising the perfect sprint finish. Although on road it is very quiet and generally traffic free. Andy Kaufman has managed a podium finish in previous years even though he turned up expecting a trail race. Results and prizes are given out in the club afterwards.
