Spring is in the Air and it’s been another busy weekend for BRRs. On Saturday 10 intrepid racers took on the kilometre of vertical ascent aka the KVK. Well done everyone

Thank you to Freedom Racing, Karen Sully, and Marty Barnfield for the photos

“OMG what a race – awesome, mud over my knees, very hilly, went rock climbing, played in the sand on the beach, and an ass busting climb/run/crawl to the finish. The views were raw, breath taking, everything we love about the Cornish coastline.” (Nicola Sinclair)

“Could only just stay on my feet in the wind so it turned into a 18.4 mile walk scrambling over rocks, wading through shin deep mud and getting battered by hail 💨💨🌨🌨💨💨 Great day though. Well done to all the BRRs that took part.” (Louise Richardson)
