With entries coming in thick and fast for the CTT National Hill Climb 2022 there are many questions on hill climbs that classify as a ‘qualifier hill climb’. Hill climbs are a feature on the British racing scene, and closed road events usually pull the crowds. That being said, we recommend entering a few to warm up to the big day on 30th October 2023. Events in the run up are a great way to test your training and work out things like Nutrition on the big day.
Events before 11th October will class as qualifier hill climbs.
So find a few to get you started through the links below…

A climb of just over 2 miles, this course follows the more well-known Horseshoe Pass starting at the Britannia Inn making its way up towards the Ponderosa Cafe. Just to clarify, this is a different course to the National Hill Climb.
