Welcome to the crossing 10th August – 12th August 2018
3 days, 2 coasts, 1 hell of an adventure

 

Get ready to tackle 200 gnarly miles over 3 days as you take on the fully waymarked tracks that span through the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. Sample some of the UK’s finest mountain biking as you ride through jaw-dropping scenery.

Battered and bruised beyond belief but so glad i took on the Challenge. Met some amazing people. Colin McCard

 

Undoubtedly the best thing I’ve ever done. Great support and sense of community too. Ben Pentney

Can’t feel my legs, sholders and by bum is on fire but a brilliant weekend now it’s over. Well done everyone who took part.  Lee Watkins

Another fantastic Rat Race – see you next year!!!!!! Fiona Bevan

This is a wilderness event in some remote country. For safety we want to ensure we can keep track of where you are. This system has the added advantage of your supporters being able to follow you online from basecamp or from the comfort of their armchairs at home.

All prices include VAT at 20% and are subject to an administration fee. A subsidised £10 hire fee will be added at the point of entry to cover the cost of GPS tracker safety equipment hire – details above pricing table. *Season ticket with solo entry only.

Why have the extra fee rather than just putting up the entry price?

• No-one likes hidden extras. We are upfront about this fee. The fairest way for us to be fully transparent is to separate this cost out and explain it. The Processing Fee has discrete input costs independent of the direct costs that produce the event. We reserve the right to change this fee based on the processing costs at any time.

Why use the system we use?

• The online payment process is provided by Paypal so it is very secure.

• It offers the opportunity to pay directly from your Paypal account (if you prefer this to paying by credit card or debit card).

• It is the cheapest and best value solution we can find and it is tailored to the events you are entering. We feel it is very competitive in the marketplace, versus the fees charged by other professional event operators.

• It integrates with charity donation web sites so there is a quick and easy way for you to raise money and obtain your fund-raising discount, should you choose. –

This fee covers the costs of operating the following:

• The credit card and Paypal processing fees

• The IT development in building, hosting and maintaining the online entry system.

• The associated bank fees and insurances required to process the event registration fees

• The administration personnel costs of running the registration database

• VAT at 20%

Why add on a percentage rather than a set fee?

• Rat Race offer such a range of challenges that our price points vary massively. Therefore it is considered the fairest option that all customers are charged the same %age pro rata.

How can I save money?

• The processing fee will be less the earlier you enter (as it is calculated as a %age) so take advantage of the Early Bird offers to get the best prices across the board.
