Enigma 100K                          Colossus 100 M

Our sportive is named in honour of the legendary home of the codebreakers; Bletchley Park - the National Codes and Cipher Centre

You have a choice of two distances:

• Enigma Sportive of 100km with around 2,800 feet of climbing

• Colossus Sportive of 100 miles with around 4,500 feet of climbing

Both distances feature an outstanding circular route through the country lanes surrounding Milton Keynes and Bletchley taking in the two counties of Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. The 100 mile route will have two feed stations, you will visit the one at Salford twice. The 100km route will visit the Salford feed once.

Registration will be open at 8am.

First aid

Start times

Both events will start at 9am, please do start as early as possible especially if you think you may take sometime to complete the route. Please bear in mind that the extra loop for the 100 mile will CLOSE at 12:00. If you have not made this point by then you will be diverted onto the 100k route.

Photography

We will have someone taking pictures at the end of the route, these will be uploaded to Facebook and we may have picture or video on route, so makesure you smile :-)

Food 

We will have plenty of savory and sweet foods for you to eat on route. Thats not to say a full blown dinner, but enough food to keep you topped up or a break from the minging health bars that everyone eats these days!! Malt loaf, flapjack, bannanas, etc and also tea, coffee and plenty of good old fashioned water.

If you are doing the 100 k route you will have a feed station at Salford village, if you are doing the 100 mile route you will have two chances to get food. 

Toilets

Aailable at the start, feed point and Finish

Timed climb

We are planning to time the climb at Great Brickhill, this will be timed twice if you are doing the 100 mile. We also looking at videoing this climb, so make sure while you are in pain that you save yourself enough energy to smile!!

Spectators

There plenty of good vantage points on the route, but I can suggest the climb at Great Brickhill and the pub the Red Lion. The other option (another great pub) is at the feed stops at Salford and the fantastic Swan with fantastic food and fine beers. Afterwards why not visit the new Prince George Pub and say hello to our hosts.
