Dunster Castle Cyclo-Cross

  • Dunster Castle Dunster Castle, Dunster, Minehead TA24 6SL England (map)

Event Overview

Minehead Merlins hosts the third round of the South West Cyclocross League on Sunday 16 September. The course is set on the Dunster polo grounds, with Dunster Castle providing a picturesque backdrop. The full course is approx. 3km in length. It is set on grass with a steep bank to the East providing a tough test for the competitors.

The racing kicks off as usual with the U8s at 10.30, through to the Junior/Senior/Women’s/Vets race at 13.30. The venue lends itself to good viewing for spectators, or the bank is a perfect place for a picnic (weather dependent!).

There is plenty of parking in the adjoining field and it is hoped there will be a selection of coffee/food vans, plus music. Once the racing is over, take the time to visit the beautiful village of Dunster and the Castle (National Trust) itself. Or take a trip on the steam train from nearby Minehead
