Iron Butt UK organises three rallies during the year. The 8 hour SAS Tour in the Spring formerly the Invictus Tour. The 12 hour Brit Butt Light, held in the summer and the 36 hour Brit Butt Rally in the autumn. This is the ninth running of the 8 hour event.
To provide riders a taste of IBA rallying in a relatively quiet area of the country, prior to entering the Brit Butt Rally or certificated rides. Veteran riders can use it as another opportunity to hone their navigation skills without riding the same distances encountered in multi-day rallies. We see this as an opportunity to encourage newcomers with a gentle introduction into our sport while offering everyone a great day's riding around the Sussex and Surrey countryside.

All profits made this year will go to: Bike Tours for the Wounded
Sussex and Surrey. The tour will start and finish at a designated tour hotel that will only be disclosed to entrants for security. The tour offers approximately 60 of locations spread across the beautiful Sussex and Surrey countryside, with the emphasis being on countryside. Most of the bonus locations have been chosen to avoid built-up areas and major highways to enhance your riding pleasure. Each location will carry points score.
All you have to do is plan to visit as many locations as you can up to a limit of 25 and take a photo of the location that matches the photo in the Tour book, send an email to a specified email address as instructed to claim the points. The tour book will be supplied a week prior to the start, once you have paid the (non-refundable) £20 entrance fee. So this will give you plenty of time to plan your route.
The rider with the highest score wins. The first three will get a trophy and every other competitor will get a certificate.
If you have ever wondered where you can go and ride somewhere different, either on your own or with mates at the weekend, where you have never been or had reason to go to before this could be ideal for you.
