Challenge Cancer Cycle 2022

Aintree Racecourse - 25, 40, or 80 Miles!


We are delighted to announce the return of Challenge Cancer Cycle for 2022!

Following on from last year's spectacular event, our favourite cycling challenge will be making a comeback to the world famous Aintree Racecourse slightly earlier than usual. Challenge Cancer Cycle is created and managed in full by the team at The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

The Charity has hosted cycling events for over 10 years and we are excited to bring you another challenging event; whether you take on the 25, 40 or the penultimate 80 miles this is the perfect cycling event for those that want to push themselves even further!

Location

Starting at the iconic Aintree Racecourse, we will take you on a journey through Merseyside and Lancashire where you will get to experience some of the breathtaking countryside throughout the area. The route is in an anti-clockwise direction, but you will complete the event by cycling back through to Aintree Racecourse where you will be able to collect your finisher's medal from our team.

If you are looking to support the Charity, simply love your cycling, or both, then this event is for you!

Every penny raised goes directly towards the incredible work of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, and the registration fee helps us to stage the very best event possible! Whatever your reason for taking part, we look forward to welcoming you to Aintree Racecourse on Sunday 21 August 2022.
