Just about sold-out, one of the fastest 300s around. Easy navigation, evenly spaced controls and lots of other places en-route for pit-stops.
Plenty of room to bivvy before and after ride.

I'd signed up last year - really looking forwards to it - never managed a full 300km before so hopefully this will be my first to complete

I've signed up for this but am going to have to pull out. It's a lovely ride although I haven't done it at this time of year.

Mark. I'll send you an email later.

Last few places still available- but looking more than likely we'll be closing the fold doors early.
