John o’ Goats Charity Event at Lyme Results

Sat 10th Apr 2021

Type of event: Local


This is our annual version of the Billy Goat head to head race held in the USA. This year we have adapted it to a low-key format for covid-19, so no mass start. But we are retaining the novel aspect where you choose which controls to miss out.
