The 2020 Naughty Northumbrian Festival has been cancelled including the original Naughty Enduro and the Frontier gravel event.
Even with restrictions starting to lift, the organisers of the Naughty Northumbrian have opted to cancel the 2020 event as they feel they cannot deliver on their promises to riders and the local community.
We would urge riders who had an entry for the 2020 event to defer their entries to 2021 to help ensure it will be the best event possible.
Read the full cancellation statement from the organisers below.
We have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Naughty Northumbrian and Naughty Frontier. All entrants will now have an email outlining their options regarding refunds and deferrals.
The event was conceived with a vision to truly represent the Northumbrian landscape, riding offerings and culture of MTB and upland communities.
Under the weight and restrictions of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we simply could not deliver on our promises.
We owe it to you, the riders, the local community who welcome us year on year or the countless volunteers and supporters who make this event happen to put health and well-being as the priority.
We will now refocus on making 2021 the best Naughty Northumbrian possible.
We thank you for your continued support and hope to welcome you back in 2021.
