ENTRIES for RB12 LAND, the roadgoing element of a unique 10-day marathon for cars, boats and aircraft, are now open.

RB12 is a new and unique event. Starting and finishing at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy, venue for the 2012 Olympic sailing events, on Wednesday June 21, it will be the first time 50 cars, 50 boats and 50 aircraft will compete around Britain simultaneously.

RB12 LAND is open to manufacturers, corporate teams, private teams and individuals and will see drivers and co-drivers pit their skills against their rivals over 10 legs, with stop-over locations at each.

After pre-event assembly in Weymouth, the following 10 days will take in stop-over locations at: Thursday 21 June, Weymouth to Falmouth; Friday 22 June, Falmouth to Swansea; Saturday 23 June, Swansea to Liverpool; Sunday 24 June, Liverpool to Campbeltown; Monday 25 June, Campbeltown to Kyle of Lochalsh; Tuesday 26 June, Kyle of Lochalsh to Wick; Wednesday 27 June, Wick to Edinburgh; Thursday 28 June, Edinburgh to Hull; Friday 29 June, Hull to Ramsgate; Saturday 30 June, Ramsgate to Weymouth.

One thought on “Round Britain marathon

  1. I’ve been wanting to plan a charity motorcycle ride around the coastal roads of the UK for a while so would be interested in knowing the route you’re planing to take?
