Are you looking for the ultimate cycling challenge?

The RACE (Race across Europe) is a once-in-a-lifetime cycling event featuring the very best of riding in Europe. This event requires exceptional teamwork, stamina, energy, strategy and humour to succeed. Don’t let ‘race’ put you off though. If you cycle in a team this challenge is achievable by most people. Those who finish can proudly say that they competed in, and completed, what we think is the hardest cycling event on earth.

The outline

Riders enter solo or in teams of 2, 4, 6 or 8 with a support crew. You can either organize your own support crew or delegate this to Greenrock.

Cyclists and their crews set off from Calais and cycle to Gibraltar along the route set by Greenrock, carrying a satellite tracking device which transmits the rider’s position every 5 minutes. The first team leave Calais on 11 June 2016. Cyclists will need to ride day and night to reach Gibraltar within the time limit.

the race 2015

Viribus Audax, a team of Physical Training Instructors in the RAF, set a new record with their time of 8 days, 20 hours, 20 minutes and 53 seconds. The riders were Ronan Archbold, Sue Pugh, Nick Hitchman and Philip Morris. They beat the previous team of 4 record, set in 2013 by Team Phoenix, by over 24 hours so massive congratulations to them and their team and we hope they enjoy the crates of beer they have been dreaming of over the last few days!

Paddy Montgomery and Seamus Crawford from Saddle Sand Sea are the first pair to ever complete the RACE, which they did in 11 days, 12 hours, 21 minutes and 4 seconds.

The RACE across Europe 2015 was the first of three events they are competing in – in 2016 they finished the Marathon des Sables and in 2017 they are taking on the Tallisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

NEW RECORD!

Huge congratulations to team Pedalling Squares from Zurich Insurance who have set a new record for Teams of 4 in the RACE across Europe!

They completed the course in 7 days, 10 hours, 24 minutes and 31 seconds despite heavy rain through France and Germany and sleet in Austria and Slovenia. 

Pedalling Squares competed in the RACE across Europe to fundraise for the Zurich Community Trust – please visit their fundraising page here.
