Kellys Bikefest Marathon

Sunday, 27. May, 2018 - 10:00

Kellys Bikefest Marathon is getting more popular each year. To provide the best racing experience for every contestant we've focused on changes in preparation and organization of the event.
Long and short route will stay unchanged. Family route will be modified up to 6 km so every child who is no longer riding a pushbike can enjoy it.
The most important changes are aimed to provide more safety and comfort during race. Straightaway navigation, doubled staff on the route, higher quality refreshment stations with fluids, fruits, bars and other goodies. Professional mechanics and rescue service at refreshment stations will be at your disposal as well. Mechanics on bikes and rescue service on quadbikes will oversee your security right on the track.
We've changed also the time table of start. This year we added bigger time gaps between starts of different length routes in order to prevent mixing of the groups.

This year pro racers will join the marathon to win points towards DEAF MTB EUROPA CUP series. Men will compete on long route, women on short route.
E-bikes are getting more popular, so we decided to open e-bike discipline with two categories.
E-bikes in first category have to follow Pedelec legal requirements. That means electric bikes that have powered assistance to a maximum of 25 km/h using a motor of no more than 250 Watts.
Bikes will be checked by Pedelec Technical Commissioner. The results are counted towards the Ebajk cup overall points.
E-bikes that won’t meet these requirements will compete in OPEN category. 
 
We highly recommend you to register online. Online registration fee is only 13 €. Gift pack, lunch and drink is included in entry fee. Entry fee at the venue will cost 20 €.
Every contestant registered online until May 11th 2018 will get his own personalised race number!
Prizes: Prize money 750 € for 23 best racers –10 fastest on long route and 10 fastest on short route and for the first three in category e-bike. Winners in each category will be awarded with steel trophy in the shape of letter R from the Biker Magazine logo. First three winners in each category will be awarded a valuable prize. The fastest racer on long (49 km) and short (23 km) route will be crowned Kings of the Kálnica Woods.
