Based over the weekend of April 20th & 21st Forme Bike Tread or Shred is a new extreme weekender offering a 10k Off Road running event, Children's XC Mountain Bike racing and an Enduro (2hr or 4hr) Mountain bike race all held at the popular Midlands venue of Cannock Chase. 


After putting on the Cannock Chase Classic MTB events we were in-undated with requests to do something similar for runners. They wanted something based on a similar course to the MTB races with plenty of mud, hills (up and down)... something of a real challenge! So we thought why not put on a whole weekends events with a running race together with something for the kids and then something for the MTBers. We got in touch with Forme Bikes, explained the idea and they loved it....Tread or Shred was born!


Shred Part 1 - Saturday 20th


Formeula XC Racing


Most of the time the children's races don't really get much thought. A quick 10 or 15 minutes in the afternoon when there's a break in the other events. At Run & Ride we're all about encouraging newcomers to the sport of cycling and running and where better to start than with the kids. Starting from 1pm we'll have a full afternoon of Children's (plus older kids) mountain bike racing. Starting with the U10's right through to under 18's. Some will race a specifically shortened course whilst others will complete 1 full lap of the 10k course that the runners used in the morning.

  • Discipline: XC Mountain Bike Racing
  • Start Time:
    • Under 10's - 1pm (10 minutes racing)
    • Under 13's - 1.30pm (15 minutes racing)
    • Juvenille - 2.10pm (1 lap)
    • Youth - 2.05pm (1 lap)
    • Junior - 2pm (2 laps)
    • Price - U10's / U12's £3.50 - All others £10


Fun & First Timers Forme 1 Lapa


Due to popluar demand we've added a fun and first timers MTB race on Saterday afternoon. Quite simple this one, male or female categories compete over 1 lap....simple, good fun racing! 

Another plus....the entry fee. Only £12.50 per rider, BARGIN


Shred Part 2 - Sunday 21st


Forme Bikes XC Enduro


We've wanted to put on an enduro on Cannock Chase for some time. It's terrain and surface makes it ideal. Good draining soil means it's 99% ridable regardless of the weather plus we think it's got the right amount of climbs / descents to make the course testing without being stupid! There's many formats around for Enduro's at the moment. We've opted for a 2hr or 4hr solo format because we feel it's what best suits everybody. The super fit guys will cover 4hrs no problem as will those who do a fair amount of training and want to push themselves. Then the 2hr option is great for those who want to have ago or those who just don't get chance to build up enough fitness for the longer events. Also by having just a solo category it means everybody gets the chance to pit themselves against their training partner, best mate or arch enemy! 

The rules are quite simple - From the start you must complete as many laps as you can within 2hr or 4hrs. After the 2hrs or 4hrs is up then you can complete the lap that you've currently on but your not allowed to start a new lap. The person who's completed the most laps wins
