Welcome to the 2013 edition of the well-established sportive around Salisbury Plain.

The event is an Army run ride with all the proceeds going to SSAFA the official Forces Charity.

3 routes await all abilities so anyone can come along and have a try.

The Long route has a unique opportunity to ride on roads not normally used by the public, (this year there will be no off road sections).
