THE RACING

The Ard Rock Enduro takes place in the Swaledale area of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. The exclusive routes and one-off trails specially designed for the weekend mean the Ard Rock is a unique adventure that takes in gnarly, rock-strewn terrain only ridable in the event. The five main events at Ard Rock are the Enduro, the Sprint, Marathon, Sport, and Intro. Start times are sent out to all competitors three weeks before the event. Check out the events here.
