2021 SHORTER ROUTE

At 852 miles, the Pan Celtic Race 2021: Shorter Route is still an awesome adventure through Cornwall, South-west England and Wales that can be completed in less time, or riders can ride less per day.

Not everyone has the time to commit to a full distance self-supported event. Perhaps you’ve never done anything like this before and want to dip your toes in before going for the full-on dive. So here is the Pan Celtic Race 2021: Shorter Route, for those who feel less is often more. Make no mistake, this route will still stretch the most seasoned riders and prove a challenge for all. No matter your background or experience, you will need to do your training and preparation to ensure a successful ride.

The shorter route follows a lot of the same roads as the Full Route but leaves out certain sections to reduce both distance and elevation gain.


The breath-taking route has an overall race distance of 853 miles / 1372 km. The elevation gain for the route is 64,123 Feet / 19,544 Metres.
