10 Under the Ben 2019

10 Under the Ben, we believe is Scotland's original and best mountain bike endurance event! It remains the flagship of the No Fuss Events portfolio,  its longevity makes it a  "must do" for every mountain biker. 10 Under the Ben and the amazing trails around Leanachen forest guarantees a great day’s riding (regardless of the weather). It does not matter whether you are racing or out for a ride with like minded people,  the emphasis is on enjoyment, friendship and a  fun atmosphere.

So what should riders expect? Firstly the clue is in the name, No Fuss, that's just what we do! From the course, you will find some fine climbs, some sweet singletrack, great gripping descents and a whole lot of fun.  It's up to you, you can go as hard, or easy, as you like. The trail network at Nevis Range has been developed around the cross country world cup course which was originally built in 2007, since then there have been some great additions to the network.  We are in no doubt that the course team will deliver another cracker of a course for 2019.

Sticking to the classic mountain bike endurance marathon format of a 10-mile lap and a 10-hour time limit, 10 Under the Ben takes place on the trails beneath Ben Nevis. 10 Under the Ben has stood the test of time and continues to attract an average of 700 riders. Racing in categories which include solos, pairs or quads. 

The  Outdoor Capital of the UK has a wide range of activities and adventures, we would encourage you to make a weekend of it, why not have a go on the famous Top Chief descent at Nevis Range.

The aim is to complete as many laps as you can in the 10 hour time limit. Teams ride in relay – there’s only one team member on the course at any one time. The event is timed using a Sportident Timing system, each team or solo will be issued with a timing card at registration, The card is worn by the team member on course. When a rider crosses the lap finish line their time is recorded, and they then pass the card onto the next team member and so on.

Riders can do as many laps (or as few) as they want in the time. After riders have passed through the timing area their lap time is recorded, they then pass the card onto another team mate or continue if riding solo.

There will be plenty going on around the course and event village, the course itself will have marshals at all strategic points, Muddy Medics will be on site and on the course if assistance is needed at any point.

The race starts at 0930 on Saturday 27th of April 2018. You must register beforehand (or the evening before) to collect your race number, timing chip and course information. Full details will be sent to entrants with participant notes in the lead up to the race.

Solo Entry £51.00 

Pair Entry £90.00

Quad Entry £150.00

We often get asked What do I get for my entry fee?

You will get 10  hours of top riding with like-minded people doing something that we all love on some of the best trails that Scotland has to offer, trails that will hold out no matter what the weather.

Rules and Regulations

It is important that you and your teammates and support crew read these very carefully. Each lap is approximately 10 miles -under 1 hour for the fastest riders, nearly 2 hours for those who are new to the sport or are just that wee bit more careful. The courses will consist of a bit of everything, including wide single track, narrow single track with rocks, roots, mud, fast flowing single track, low gear uphill’s, water crossings, technical ascents and descents, plus fire roads. The event is for solo riders and for teams in a relay format.


1. Mandatory pre-event meeting at 0830 on Saturday for all team captains/team leaders, although all riders and crew are encouraged to attend. Teams must designate a captain/ team leader (this will be understood to be first name entered in team) to handle all official matters including pre event meeting, picking up registration packs, making sure all teammates have correct numbers and have completed any paperwork etc.

2. Each team and solo rider will bear responsibility for their timing. In order for laps to count riders must pass through the transition area and use the chips correctly every time a lap is completed.

3. Waiting riders should always check in with transition officials prior to starting their lap. Please adhere to the NO RIDE RULES in transition areas. Riders should only use solo riders area if they are in that class.

4. If a team member wishes to do two laps in a row it essential that they still ‘dib’ when passing through transition.

5. Each team member and solo rider must complete a minimum of one lap. Teams will be penalised a lap for each lap not completed by each member except in the case of any injury, which must be reported to race official who will make final decision.

6. If a team member cannot complete his or her lap, the team has the option of starting the lap over with a new rider. They will however, lose the distance and time of the uncompleted lap. The replacement rider must check in with timing official prior to starting the lap.

7. For obvious safety reasons there is no reverse riding on the course.

8. Teammates may cannibalise each other’s bikes or swap if necessary. Riders may accept mechanical support on the course by any other registered rider; transition and camp areas is the only area where assistance from support crews is acceptable.

9. Riders may accept food and water from anyone on the course.

10. We strongly suggest that each team and solo rider have a support crew of at least 1 or 2 persons who are not taking part to assist with various jobs such as organsing transitions, cooking and assisting with mechanical problems.

11. Bike wash areas will be available at each event. Toilets and showers will be available throughout the weekend. Please use the toilets provided.

12. If you are planning camping please be aware that there is limited space in the car park at Nevis Range. The ground is almost all hard standing and not easy to get pegs in. Space is allocated at a first come, first serve basis. Camping will also be available at Torlundy Farm, which is around 2 miles cycle on an old forestry access road (tarred).

13. You will need all your own camping supplies. A variety of food (hot and cold meals, soup and snacks) will be available for purchase at the transition area Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Check website for event specific updates.

14. Riders may require lights, which must be at least 4 watts and be secured to bikes or helmet. NO FUSS will have final say when lights should be used.

15. If lighting is required it will be against the rules for riders to ride with their lights out to save batteries. Riders violating this rule will have their current lap nullified.

16. Only riders officially entered in the event or designated as “Official Course Marshals” may ride the designated course.

17. Wearing a buckled helmet is mandatory anytime you are on your bike in the race area (not just when it is your lap).

18. All team captains and solo riders must attend pre-race meeting at 0830 on the Saturday

19. Ignorance of any rule will not be accepted as an excuse.

20. Foul riding will not be tolerated, unsportsmanlike behaviour is totally un-acceptable. This includes the use of profane or abusive language, this rule is taken very seriously by No Fuss and anyone who violates this rule shall be disqualified from this and any future No Fuss events.

21. Shortcutting the course can be grounds for automatic disqualification of the solo rider or the entire team. If a rider makes a mistake and they report to officials before it is discovered, a time adjustment will be applied rather than a DQ.

22. Riders who are riding their bikes have the right of way over those who are pushing their bikes. Where practical, riders pushing should stay on the least rideable portion of the trail when being passed. Riders are encouraged to call pleasantly “passing on the right or left” as appropriate.

24. Safety on the course is our primary concern. If you come across an injured rider or a potentially unsafe situation, you are encouraged to stop and assist.

You must then complete your lap, report to the transition official and report the nature of the assistance you provided and an approximate duration of your stop. You will be assigned a lap time in accordance with your or your teams average times, whichever is the faster. NB Time adjustments are made by a No Fuss official and are final.
