This is THE classic MTB Marathon in the UK.

The course is designed by trail-building legend (he’ll hate us for saying that!) Peter Laing, and has regularly been voted the best in the country.

MTB Enduro as you’ve never seen it before…..!

OK, we’re not competing to be the gnarliest, raddest and baddest Enduro out there. Plenty of others are after that crown. But if you fancy sweet, rideable, flowing trails to test yourself on, step right up. Selkirk Enduro – is the sweet spot between old-skool Marathon and super-gnarr Enduro.
