Course Information



The 2018 event will be based around a similar course to the hugely popular previous events. Lap distance will be approximately 7 kilometres, with solo or relay teams aiming to complete as many laps as possible over the 6 hours.

The unique part of Tide to Tide is a short section on Cefn Sidan beach, where the rock hard sand is extremely fast. The lap will be approximately 50% singletrack, 30% doubletrack or forest roads and 20% beach.

For the first time, due to the tide time there will be no darkness! The race will start at 10am and finish at 4pm.

    What's included:


  • Event HQ facilities & parking

  • Full route marking

  • Electronic chip timing

  • Event photographer

  • First aid support

  • Bike wash facilities
