Selkirk MTB Marathon & Enduro

MTB Marathon

The most popular (and challenging) mountain bike marathon course in the UK?. Yep, we think so.  These are truly epic and ‘out there’ rides through the very best of the Scottish Borders and Southern Uplands.  Choice of 2 single-loop courses (approx. 25km and 50km).  Superb mix of flowy natural singletrack, ancient drove roads, mahoosive climbs, grind-inducing descents, stunning riverside trails, and big hills!.

MTB Enduro

Selkirk Enduro is the sweet spot between old-skool Marathon and super-gnar Enduro. All the fun, all the adventure, all the challenge. Everything that’s good about MTB in one hit Timed special stages?. Yep. Good ones as well – singletrack that’s technical enough, fun and challenging, but not a crazy steep gnaar-fest. Whether you’re Enduro-curious or Rad to the Power of Sik, this is the race for you.  Based on the same course as the 50km Marathon, you’ll have a great ‘out there’ experience.

Date: May 6, 2018
Venue: Selkirk Rugby Club
Ettrickhaugh Road, Selkirk, Scottish Borders, TD7 5AX, United Kingdom
Cost: 25-45



This stunning sportive centred around the market town of Kelso is not one to miss. Kelso is a border town and when you think of the Scottish Borders you think of big open spaces, heather-clad hills, hundreds of square miles of forests and woodland, lochs and rivers and idyllic roads for cyclists making the perfect place for the Scottish Wanderer.

What’s at Pitfichie?

Pitfichie is one of the very few places in the north-east of Scotland which has had mountain bike trails professionally developed and maintained by Forestry Commission Scotland. Pitfichie’s trails lead through varied forest and across open hill tops, with fabulous views of the Vale of Alford and Bennachie. There are two way marked cross country trails, an epic downhill course and a host of other informal trails, a combination of which will be used for the event route. Last year the Scottish Enduro Series (SES) came to Pitfichie and many who came were calling it the best event race out the six which took place across the year. Check out the video here: https://vimeo.com/214158168

It will be well signed on the day.

Is it race novice friendly?
