The 2017 Freedom Challenge season is about to get underway - the third running of the Race to Cradock is upon us and this year also see's the inaugural Race to Willowmore being held which follows on straight after RTC.
With the first batch of riders starting their journey in Rhodes on Wednesday, the field this year includes many first timers to the Trail, some lured by the tales of friends, some venturing forth into unknown territory by themselves. What will they find along the trail? Endless vistas, wide open spaces, heat, dust and an equally good chance of rain and mud but without doubt a new adventure. Will the cameraderie and hospitality of the Freedom Trail be the lasting impression for them too?
For some of the 'old hands,' its the chance to show the newbies the ways of the Trail and for others, the chance to test themselves - to go deep into the night and see what lies beyond the fatigue and discomfort..
Join us as the action unfolds - the Trail awaits.. let the games begin.
