Run to the where? Hopefully the teams won’t be running for their lives as Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden sang about, but they will be riding themselves stupid all over the UK!

We have got some of the fastest and most stylish riders together from all corners of the UK and we are packing them off on a mission. That mission is to get on a road trip and record their riding, driving and general unrepeatable antics on camera. Each team will have a film maker and photographer with them who will capture every skid, wheelie and berm smashing roost from the trip.

Expect to see Brendan Fairclough, Sam Pilgrim and Joe Barnes amongst many others tearing their way across the UK to finally meet at Bike Park Wales for one last challenge and to submit their footage and photos.

You, their adoring public will be updated daily on what they are up to and then be given the opportunity to vote for your favourite videos and photos form each team. Giving you the responsibility of crowning the first Run to the Hills Champions!

It all kicks off on the 30th of September so keep your eyes peeled and wang the hashtag #dirtrtth into your mobile telecommunications box to keep up to date on Twitter.

We will release the details of the teams soon and let you into more of the details too, but basically you can expect some incredible UK based action from some of the best riders in the best of what the UK has to offer.

Finally for now, a big thanks to XS Power Drink for their help in making this event happen.
