Guildford Town Centre Races

July 2020 Guildford Town Centre Races Cancelled


With the ongoing situation and the Coronavirus pandemic we have taken the decision to cancel the Guildford Town Centre Races planned for July 2020.  As with every other sporting event this year, there is continuing uncertainty about what events will be permitted and safe this summer as well as what environment they can be held in.  We are an optimistic bunch at Charlotteville Cycling Club and we are still hoping to hold a similar event on a Sunday in the late summer or early autumn.  Please bear with us and keep checking back. Look out for further updates here and on our social media channels. We look forward to seeing you all later in the year and, in the meantime, keep riding!


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!
