Basecamp Cancellation

Welcome to Rat Race BASECAMP 2012: A Festival within the Festival featuring live music, camping, real ales, great food and a run or or ride for those who are feeling spritely.

Rat Race Adventure Sports are proud to be working with Cliffhanger in 2012 and we look forward to bringing everyone the opportunity to get involved in what we do best over the entire weekend. From the Friday evening through to Sunday, we’ve got a programme of action lined up at BASECAMP to light your (camp) fire. As is the case with Cliffhanger the event is for everyone and with that in mind Under 16’s can access the BASECAMP arena for FREE! Restrictions do apply which can be seen here.

Over the course of the weekend BASECAMP will offer you the option to run or ride, listen to some absolutely stonking live music and enjoy our beer tent and the rest. That’s not forgetting the Rat Race Store of course, crammed full of shiny stuff from bags to bikes; racks to ropes. Then pitch your tent in the BASECAMP village and enjoy a night or two under the stars…
