Available at select EWS events, 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. Previously known as the Challenger, the EWS80 is now defined as the race that's set 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!

Entries open in December and and spots will be released on a space available , first come basis.
