The Event

A highlight of the Guildford Festival each year, the races are fought out by the country’s top road racers. This is guaranteed to bring a fast and hard-fought main event on Guildford’s notoriously tough course, with its cobbled climb up the High Street and tight, narrow corners out of North Street.  As well as the main event a programme of supporting events is also offered including the ever popular ‘youngsters’ race where many top cyclists of the future get their first opportunity to ride in such a big event. The biggest applause is often saved for the smallest riders!

The Races

As part of the races there are six races throughout the evening as follows:


6.15pm - Youth Criteriums - U8 (Youth E) 

6.25pm - Youth Criteriums - U12/U10 (Youth C & D) 

6.40pm - Youth Criteriums - U16/U14 (Youth A & B)

Please also note that the Youth and Support Races will be accepting entries on a 'first come, first served' basis but the main (E1/2) race will have the field chosen based on the best riders available. This will be based on 1) Licence category, 2) Recent results, 3) Date of Entry
