Challenges & Races

Wildhomestay and our partners are hosting some small scale challenges for the running, cycling and tri community in 2020/21. Dates are a bit of a mess due to the COVID but we hope to be hosting these events regularly through 2021. Our events combine the local landscape, competitive adventure, some fun twists and a great weekend out.


Dirty & Clean Challenges. We hope to run these non-profesional competitive fun rides a few times before the end of the year. It’s best to join our Strava club to get the latest updates.

DirtyClean – Anhui China – Planned & Described as the toughest 1-day cycling challenges in China!!!

Hosted by wildhomestay with support from our partners we’re incorporating weekends of fun and adventure. Tweaks and extras compared to last year but keeping to its core roots of being described as the “toughest 1 day cycling challenge in China” . Further info

The Three Courses

Sometime in 2020 – Anhui China – Road or adventure bike. 3 mountains , 3 segments, 3 meals 
A simple concept. Have a great meal with a great view ontop of a mountain after a great hill climb. Repeat three times. Hoping to do sometime in early summer when the days are long and kit can be minimized. Sunset dinner segment in the North, Sunrise breakfast in the South, ending in the scorching sun lunch in the West.


Autumn Trial. TBA – Run Ride Run. A short sharp uphill run, climbing through a forest, jump on the bike, an off-road downhill, a 200m flat section, various ups and downs, then back up, drop the bike and run home. Not easy.
