The Saracen Century audax

 

The Saracen Century Audax is a challenging and picturesque course that passes through the counties of Worcestershire, Shropshire and Herefordshire, visiting historical market towns and beautiful rolling countryside.  

The route starts from Droitwich and immediately heads west to cross the River Severn at Holt Heath before turning northwest through Great Witley, Abberley and then the climb up to Clows Top at 25km.

Then it’s predominantly downhill to the first control in Cleobury Mortimer (32km) where you can enjoy a well-earned cafe break.

After a gently undulating ride to Tenbury Wells (46km) we climb again (55km) as we make our way to Bromyard at 69km for our second control and another café stop.

There is a climb soon after Bromyard and then apart from the climb up to Berrow Green at 83km it’s a gently undulating ride back to the finish.
