*The Pace sportive has been cancelled for 2020, with Struggle Dales rescheduled for 12 September in its place. The change is due to the coronavirus outbreak. Pace will return next year with a provisional date of 11 September 2021.*
Everything abut Pace, from the course (relatively flat) to the feed stations (pre-filled water bottles), is designed to help you smash out a PB.
The 100-mile course packs in 3,458 feet (1,054m) of climbing, but compared with Struggle's two flagship sportives, Struggle Dales and Struggle Moors, it's a fast one.
Other features include "Speed Feeds", feed stations where you can grab pre-filled Struggle water bottles and snacks from OTE. At the start, "pace pens" will allow riders to set off in groups of similar speed - including your friends or clubmates if you go as a group - with the fastest riders setting off first to avoid congestion.
Included in the entry fee is a finisher's medal, free event photographs, water bottles, live tracking, event parking and nutrition.
