The Galloway Hillbillies are preparing to welcome mountain bikers back to Kirroughtree Forest for the return of the 10@Kirroughtree on Saturday 5th September.

The event will run as it has in the past: as many laps in 10 hours as you can manage, the highlight being Kirroughtree’s fantastic singletrack (and some natural of course) winding its way around the Galloway Forest Park.

Entry options are - individuals and teams of 2, 3 or 4 in Senior, Vets and Super Vets, over 14s only.

Thanks to the many local sponsors and fantastic entries in the Kirroughtree Hillbilly Duathlon that took place earlier in the year, the Galloway Hillbillies have organised a range of entertainment for the day of the 10@Kirroughtree, including D&G Inflatables Bull and assault course and the 7 stanes display team, all to the beat of Africadabra, who will be drumming within the wood.

This will be a fun family day and the group want as many people as possible to come out and support the riders whilst enjoying the entertainment.

The Galloway Hillbillies are an enthusiastic group of mountain bikers based at Kirroughtree, who run events on a non profit basis with any money raised ploughed back into the next event. We would like to thank Nofussevents for allowing us to take on the 10@kirroughtree this year and hope that as many local riders will support the event by signing up and encouraging their friends to come along and support them.

Registration will be on Friday the 4th September at 6pm-8pm and Saturday 5th September 7am-8am.

Pre Race meal included with entry on Friday 4th September 6pm-9pm

Camping available on a first come first served basis, gates open on Friday the 4th September at 12 midday. Check out the Hillbillies website (www.gallowayhillbillies.org) and Facebook page (Kirroughtree Hillbilly Duathlon) for details of accommodation special offers for entrants to the 10 event.
