Entries for Muckmedden’s Fair City Enduro Go Live Friday 2nd April.

Entries for the best big little race out there, Muckmedden’s Fair City Enduro, go live at 7pm Friday 2nd April.

Crucial to the opening of entries for Muckmedden’s Fair City Enduro, due to take place on October 30th 2021, is the limit of 200 entries in the opening wave, owing to the unknown factor of what, if any, restrictions will be in place by then.

Entries go live at 7pm on Friday 2nd April and will be restricted to 200 entries to start with. This event has never not sold out, so this isn’t a genius marketing ploy by the Muckmedden team to stoke a heap of interest. Just look at the Scottish round of the Enduro World Series… Sold out in minutes while the rest of the rounds still have spaces…

COVID 19

It is likely that some safety measures will still be in place at the time of the event with regards to hygiene and physical distancing, particularly within the event village and stage start/stop areas. Some aspects including the final registration procedure, event village layout and prizegiving ceremonies will depend on which COVID restrictions are in place at the time.

Hopefully you can understand why we’ll have to keep everyone posted on these things as the picture becomes clearer. But Fair City Enduro with a bit of hand-sanitiser is better than no Fair City Enduro at all, right?

Registration and Start Information

Each rider will receive an email prior to the event containing details of how to book a wave start time. Riders should aim to arrive in the event village exactly one hour before their wave start time. This will allow enough time to register, collect timing chips/race numbers, do some pre-race faffing and get to the start line. The pre-event email will feature a safety briefing and any other relevant updates. Please check spam folders in case the email has gone in there by mistake.

Pre-race Briefing

Prizegiving/Podium Ceremony

Depending on which restrictions are in place at the time of the event, a podium ceremony will either take place in the event village at 4.30pm after the race, or if that’s not possible we’ll host a live podium/prizegiving ceremony online the following week.
