Cheddar Gorge Omnium
The Cheddar Gorge Omnium sees runners take on 4 different events over the course of an afternoon (Bronze or Silver), with a final ranking based on the finish positions across each event. It is a best all rounder style competition, in a fun, friendly and inclusive atmosphere.
Runners will rotate around the first 3 events (100m Sprint, 1 km Middle Distance, Hill Climb) according to which group is selected on the registration form. All runners will then take part in the Endurance event together (6km or 10km). Gold Omnium racers will also take part in the Half Marathon on the Sunday as their fifth event.
There is a choice of which Endurance distance event you complete, which determines whether you complete a Bronze (6km), Silver (10km) or Gold (10km + Half Marathon) Omnium.
Bronze Omnium - min age 12
Silver Omnium - min age 14
Gold Omnium - min age 17

Aim to arrive on site 90mins before the start of your wave. This is because we are part of a bigger festival this year so we need to allow extra time for parking
