Blaenau 600 2024
8th June 2024
£0 - £100
20th November 2023
In 2022, the Blaenau 600 was born. By far the most challenging event we had ever run (or ridden), the inaugural edition surpassed our expectations in every way and we built on our experiences and lessons learned to deliver an expanded event in 2023.For 2024 the Blaenau 600 will be back with a few tweaks and will also include a new parallel event, the Blaenau Women’s Rally, which will be a ‘semi-supported’ event and be based on our Blaenau 480 route – it’ll actually be 500km as there are a couple of variations to take riders past some recommended minimalist campsites. More details will be available soon on the Rally, but the event will include a recovery vehicle and bag drops at three locations.At 600km long with over 14,000m of climbing, taking in multiple Welsh hill and mountain ranges, the brutality of the landscape is equalled only by its beauty. Blaenau translates roughly as ‘remote uplands’, so you get the idea! The Blaenau 600 follows a fixed route, is self-supported, and is fully tracked for Dot Watching (but has no prizes or podiums).
