Challenges & Races

Wildhomestay and our partners are hosting some small scale, very challenging races for the running, cycling and tri community in 2020. Dates are a bit of a mess due to the virus but we hope to be hosting these events from summer 2020. Our events combine the local landscape, some fun twists and a great weekend out.

Dirty Clean 2020

The main Dirty & Clean Races are delayed to Autumn. Dates will be provided at a later time but most likely mid-November after the main season’s races but before it gets too cold. We will still hold a competitive fun ride weekends starting in June. Join our Strava club for updates.

Autumn 2020 – Anhui China – Planned & Described as the toughest 1-day cycling race in China!!!
An easy bullet train ride or flight to a truly unique cycling race in rural China. A Clean road bike 180km route & a Dirty 160km all surface route. Hosted by wildhomestay with support from our partners we’re incorporating a weekend of fun and adventure. Tweaks and extras compared to last year but keeping the Dirty to its core roots of being described as the “toughest 1 day race in China” . Further info

The Three Courses

Sometime in 2020 – Anhui China – Road or adventure bike. 3 mountains , 3 segments, 3 meals – 24h 
A simple concept. Have a great meal with a great view ontop of a mountain after a great hill climb. Repeat three times. Either a 8h mountain segment ending in a meal or join for all 3 to get the grand 24h prize. Sunset dinner segment in the North, Sunrise breakfast in the South, ending in the scorching sun lunch in the West. Details to follow in December.

2020 Charity “Ride For Sharing” Weekend

sometime in 2020 – Anhui China – A weekend of riding and giving for novice and younger riders.
A weekend of adventure to raise money and awareness for a Cambodian and Local orphanage. Organised by kids for kids there will be various adventurous rides which are accessible and fun, but yet a challenge, for younger and less experienced riders.


Autumn 2020 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.
