Here's what's lined up for the teams.

Dragon Trail 16-18 March 2023 - Did someone say they wanted more time on Blue Derby Trails???

We are mixing up the course a little in 2023 to allow for … drum roll ….. more time in Derby! In 2023, Day 1 of the Dragon Trail will be a loop that starts and finishes in Derby. This route will take in some simply superb trails. Did anyone say Atlas? Krushkas? Both these blue trails have received a lot of love in the last 12 months and are favourites to ride. We are excited to include them in Dragon Trail. 

Day 2, Bay of Fires, will still start in Weldborough and generally remain the same. In welcome news, it will include an additional 4km of single track on the Bay of Fires trail after Aid Station 2. This cuts out some of those steep ups and downs on rugged fire trail when you’re very tired.  Day 3, St Helens Dreaming, will remain the same.

On the logistical side of the event, the flow on of this change is that we will now only have 2 camps not 3. We will spend an extra night in Branxholm (for those camping) then move the camp direct to St Helens. Shuttles will be available for riders from Branxholm to Weldborough for the start of Day 2. These will need to be pre-booked with your entry. 

 Entries are set to open on July 1, 2022 with early discounts on offer. The website will be updated shortly with all these details.
