How long is an Enduro ?

How long is an Enduro ?

As I mentioned before , an Enduro can be an entire day of racing . On a slow technical trail , 45 miles of single track could wear you out . If the terrain is more open and fast paced , 100 + miles might be more the tune of the event . The organizer , the terrain and the available land will all dictate the length of the race you ’ ll be taking on .
Lengths of test sections will also vary throughout the event . The variety in milage lengths could be due to terrain , the way an organizer wants to test the athletes or a combination of reasons .
Due to the endurance nature of an Enduro , you will want to make sure you prepare your bike and body for a full day of riding . If you ’ re looking to race your first enduro , test the waters by making sure you can ride 45-55 miles with your riding buddies .
