Awarded on a first-come, first-served bases and limited to just 500 entries, the 2006 edition of 24 Hours of Mountain Biking for Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood is now open for registration.
Last year's event raised more than £34,000 for children's cancer and leukaemia charity CLIC Sargent, the 2006 event promises to be the bigger and better again. With a target of £50,000, CLIC24 will offer up its usual mix of home-cooked food, live music, free campsite and its unique laid-back atmosphere.
The race will be held on the the same course as last year; a widely acclaimed ten-mile loop including steady endurance climbs and miles of swooping downhill singletrack through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Somerset known as the Mendip Hills.
CLIC24 2006 will be held on the weekend of 13 and 14 May at Charterhouse, Mendip Hills, Somerset and entry forms are now available for download from the event web site at www.clic24.org.uk.
