Mad March Hare

March 26

The original madhare sportive, The Mad March Hare returns for a 15th edition in 2023!

The 100km/66mile route meanders through quiet rolling country lanes with a few climbs to test those spring legs.

New Venue

We are very happy to have found a new home for the Mad March Hare in 2023 at the Transport Museum Wythall – a local attraction and charity that brings the history of transport to life for families and enthusiasts to enjoy.

The venue has plenty of space for us to add our Madhare flair; as well as all the seating and toilets we could wish for! The museum will be closed to the public during the event (so we have the place to ourselves) but that doesn’t mean there won’t be some classic buses and vehicles on show and even a miniature railway!

Car Parking

There will be exclusive off-site car parking available no more than 500m away from the venue. Tickets for parking are available through the entry form.

New Pricing Structure

The base price includes:

Well signposted 100km route with new route sections, hill marshals (with Jelly Babies!) and downloadable GPS route

Race number with timings chip

Registration pack pick-up party (Gorilla Coffee Cafes)

Hot drinks and bananas at the start line

Great food on route including lunch, snacks, energy gels and water

Mechanical support provided by Gorilla Cycling Cafe

Medical support provided by Transmed

Broom wagon @ avg 12mph
