The Mini-Ultimate Challenge!


New for 2024, The Mini Iconic Series!

The Iconic Series has run since 2018, it’s been a successful 3-part medal which clips together to form one of the most respected and hard to obtain medals in Sportive riding. We often thought about offering a miniseries however until we launched The Mini Beast this wasn’t possible. However, now we’ve got the Mini Beast in place, we can offer those wanting some special, a big challenge but not quite as bonkers as the Full Fat Challenge!

We bring you The Tour of The Peak Medium Route as part 1, 100km and 1,775m of vert. The Peak is one of our most famous events, it’s got a load of history dating back to being one of the toughest races before becoming a Sportive. The Peak Medium is without a doubt our toughest medium route.

Then we have Lincoln 161, a very different event but still a challenge. Don’t underestimate how hard 100 flat miles can be! The new Lincoln concept means you can ride as far as you want, set a mileage record and then turn around and head back.

3rd up we’ve got The Mini Beast! 100 miles in the Yorkshire Moors with The Beast in pursuit at 12.5 miles an hour. If he catches you, it’s game over! 160km and 2,436m of vert. It’s tough!!

At the end of The Beast (if you make it) you’ll be able to clip together your Peak Medal, your (new design for 2024) Lincoln 161 Medal and finally, get the Mini Beast Medal to place in the middle to make an awesome 3 part Iconic Series Medal!

Enter in 1 transaction (pay by Klarna if you wish) and you save £15 on the standard entry fee! Be part of the 1st edition of this awesome new concept!

N.B. there will be a new Beast Medal in 2024 for riders taking part in the 204 mile version of The Beast.
