The Haldon Heroic is a Gravel Ride / CX sportive showcasing the best gravel trails in the Haldon Forest area!

There will be a professional photographer out on the course, taking action photos as a memento of your day, which are free to you. There will also be a professional Sports Massage Therapist available at the HQ (for an additional fee) and a free Bike Wash Bay.

All finishers will receive the unique Haldon Heroic medal. The event is featured in Red Bull’s Best Cyclocross and Gravel Events!

The Micro route will be way-marked (which is also the start and finish of the longer routes). However the Mega and Medio routes will be predominantly self nav. Accurate, downloadable electronic routes compatible with most devices can be downloaded or you can follow the route on your mobile phone using the free RWGPS app. There'll be full technical support in advance of the event to ensure you have the correct route loaded.

This event is part of Haldon Heroic.

Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:


  • Trees not tees

    For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees

  • Avoid single-use plastics

    New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.

  • Optional medals

    Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.

  • Swim hats on request

    Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.

  • Reuseable zip ties and recycling

    Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.

  • Reducing car use

    At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
