Entries open at 8am this morning for The Dirty Reiver. 

Boasting new routes and an endless supply of fast-rolling "hero gravel", the UK's biggest gravel event returns for its 8th edition on Saturday 20 April 2024.

Entries are guaranteed to sell out very quickly. To book your place, head over to the event website at dirtyreiver.co.uk.

Taking place in Kielder forest park near the English-Scottish borders of Northumberland, the Dirty Reiver is inspired by the Gravel Grinder race format originating in the American mid-west.

WIth on-site camping and a gravel expo, the Dirty Reiver attracts a packed field of gravel enthusiasts from across the UK and beyond.

Three routes will once again be on offer: the Dirty Reiver 200 (200km), Dirty One Thirty (130km) and the Dirty Sixty Fiver (65km). The 'Sixty Fiver' course is also open to E-Bikes as the Dirt-E-Reiver.

Entries this year are priced £65 for the Dirty Sixty Fiver and £75 for the two longer routes. The entry fee includes a post-ride meal.
