The Stinger 2021
The format for the classic Stinger has remained gloriously unchanged throughout its life – a 5km off-road run, followed by 20km on mountain bike before you head out on The Stinger run. It may only be 3km, but it will be 3 km of the deepest mud and steepest hills Newnham Park has to offer. You’ll love it.

Classic distance relay pairs (one runner, one rider): male pair (14+), female pair (14+), mixed pair (14+)
Novice distance: solo male (14+), solo female (14+)

Fully Sussed is run by husband and wife duo Maddie and Jay Horton. Prolific racers, and now race organisers and coaches, we have been on the mountain bike scene since the 1990s, and have racked up an impressive set of results in solo and pair competitions. We are more likely to be seen riding for fun and organising events these days.
