Now in its 7th year 10 under the ben is a must do for all mountain bike enthusiasts. A 10 hour endurance event where individuals or teams of 2 3 or 4 complete as many laps of a 10 mile course as they can in 10 hours.

The events are ten-hour endurance events, however that does not mean that every participant has to ride for a full ten hours. The expectation is that the majority of riders will be in teams and ride in a relay that is only one rider on the course at any time. Whilst not riding, the team, as well as preparing for the next ride and trying to relax can expect to be entertained with good music and acts throughout the event.

Please follow us on Facebook and look out for your opportunity to contribute to the event play list.

The courses are all different; all have a good mixture of forestry roads and single track. Look out for some new additions in Fort William,isnt it amazing even as we run into year seven we are still uncovering some hidden gems and wee links to ensure 10 Under the Ben continues to be the No Fuss Flagship event.

Come and join us for a weekend of Endurance Mountain biking at arguably one of the best event venues that this country has to offer. Enjoy the event with friends and family as well as the other competitors and have fun at these friendly events. The course will be about 10 miles in length and will be 100% rideable.

Whilst the venues will offer a limited amount of camping (which we will take bookings for, first come first served it is limited), There are unfortunatly no shower facilities (solar showers available) There are refreshments as well as entertainment throughout the race and the Saturday evening. State of the Art Computerized timing and lap recording. Progress- board updates throughout the events. Random prizes all day.

Please take this opportunity to take advantage of the earlybird prices.
