HALLO Halo Oktoberfest 2015

We know it is only March and spring has barely made an appearance but with the online entry for the Halo Oktoberfest powered by Heritage Volkswagen going live on the 1st April we thought it is time to let everybody know about the 2015 version of Bikefest’s Bavarian brother.

OktoberFestThe Oktoberfest is a solo, pairs and team relay race held on the 10km long singletrack packed all weather course in Ashton Court, Bristol.

With solo and pair entries for the Ritchey Bristol Bikefest being sold out for weeks and the team categories filling up quickly we expect the Oktoberfest to see a similar run – so in particular if you missed out on a solo or pair entry at the Bikefest make sure you get your details and credit card ready when the entry opens at 8am on Wednesday the 1st April – click here to enter.

Entries filling quickly

Latest update from our entry desk – entries have been flying in and at this point we have less than 10 solo and 20 pairs places left for the 2015 Bristol Bikefest (across all lengths/distances).

We will keep the entry open for these two categories till Friday the 20th February (lunch time) – however if the places go before then, we will have to close it sooner. (more…)
