The Mount Kenya Trust 10to4 Team have been working hard to create a brand new website with all the information you’ll need to decide which 10to4 race to choose for 2024! The site is now live, so check it out using the www.10to4.org address and let us know what you think. As ever, the content will continue to develop as we add details of the event schedule, race routes, pre-event registration, what’s on at Race Village, Bike Drop, and all the other essential information for the weekend, so do get in touch with suggestions if you can’t find what you need.
Registration for the 2024 event will soon be open (at last!)
We’ve had a few technical challenges but we hope they’ll all be resolved by the end of the week so you should be able to register at the weekend, hoorah!
Interested in joining them?
Anyone can support the 2024 Challenge by becoming a sponsor. Each year, the generosity of dozens of individuals and organisations covers the cost of putting on the event, which means that every shilling, cent or penny of the race fees are used to support our beloved mountain. There are a whole range of sponsorship packages available at price levels to suit all pockets, so go on … do something amazing today!
If a sponsorship package is a little more than you’d like to commit, we have a new programme for 2024 through which you can sponsor a local rider. Every year there are talented Kenyan cyclists who are unable to compete because the race fee, transportation, insurance and accommodation costs are just too high for them. While we want to be as inclusive as possible, the bottom line is that competitive cycling is a relatively expensive sport, and this is a fund-raising event.
In previous years, individuals and organisations have generously supported riders who would have otherwise missed out, and this year we’re offering all competitors the opportunity to contribute via a donation at registration. We already have a bit in the pot as a couple of 2023 winners kindly donated their prize money. So even if you can only spare a small amount, please do as it all adds up! And if you’d like to nominate a Kenyan cyclist who might benefit from this programme, please do get in touch.
That’s all for now … keep an eye on the website over the weekend!
