Pricing must be difficult for this type of event. For a charity event, I would rather pay a higher entry fee and not have an obligation to get sponsorship, but the MGT are looking for £200 of sponsorship too. But, if you are prepared to ask people for money £200 probably isn't that hard to raise.

I think you have to take the view that you are paying not just for the actual support you get on the event, but for the experience. It also seems that duathlons and triathlons are very expensive compared to our events, so in the wider scheme this might not be that unreasonable - just seems like it when we're used to paying a fiver!

That looks great Fiona and as I am doing a lot of cycling just now I would have loved to enter but £270 + travel is a bit steep. I have noticed that a lot of these charity events tend to be expencive and I wonder if they are not going to kill the Golden Goose.

Not a 'LDWA-type' event as it's a bike'n'hike, and not really suitable for our normal listings, but worth a plug.
