About the Odlo Glentress Seven

Welcome to the Magnificent Eighth Edition of the Odlo Glentress Seven! 

The Odlo Glentress Seven is TweedLove’s flagship endurance mountain bike event, and firmly established as one of Scotland's most popular MTB events. It's a great day’s riding and racing for everyone, with the emphasis on great trails and a friendly, fun atmosphere.

Expect some nice climbs, fantastic singletrack, great descents and a whole lot of fun – you can go as hard, or easy, as you like. The main descent is a total classic and not open for riding the rest of the year.

If seven hours of riding isn’t enough challenge (!!) you can even do a trail run on the course the evening before. We've even added a bitesize 5k trail run NEW for 2018!  To sign up for one of our discounted trail runs please see below.

Check out the video of the 2017 event! 

A seven hour race - how it works

The aim is to complete as many laps as you can in the seven hour time limit. Teams ride in relay – there’s only one team member on the course at any one time. Timing is via an electronic card which is worn by the team member on course. When a rider crosses the lap finish line their time is recorded, and they then pass the card onto the next team member and so on.

Riders can do as many laps as they want/can manage in the time. The transition/timing/ team change-over area is in the event village. The course is marked out all the way round and there are marshals at all key positions.

Riders can go as hard or easy as they like, and there’s always the lure of a nice cake and a bit of a social down at the event village. There’s also a cake and water station at the top of the course.

The race starts at 10am on Saturday 26 May. You must register beforehand (or the evening before) to collect your race number, timing chip and course information. Full details will be sent to entrants as a pdf download the week before the race.


Solo Entry £49.00

Pair Entry £85.00

Trio Entry £124.50

This event is suitable for riders who are competent on blue and red grade trails. Any drop-offs are avoidable and technical sections are short and not too scary. The course is around 11km with around 380m of climbing each lap.
