Introduced in 2019, the EWS80 is exactly what it says in the name. Race 80% of the full EWS course during an EWS weekend, with slightly relaxed rules but all the challenges.
There's no need for pre-qualification and entry is open to anyone who wants to take part. Youth categories offered.
EWS80 race is designed to be tough but achievable for everyone. Example: The EWS80 you might climb 1600m of an EWS course that sees the pros climb 2000m or you might race one less stage. The 80% is a symbolic statistic - but It's still a massive day out designed to give you the perfect challenge and experience!
Available at all 2021 EWS venues.
Entries open in February . Spots will be released on a space available, first come basis.
