Founded by Mike Hall in 2013, the Transcontinental Race (TCR) is an annual, self-supported, ultra-distance bikepacking race across Europe. The route varies for each edition, with a length of about 3800-4000 km expected for 2017. The race generally starts in northwestern Europe and finishes in southeastern Europe, with two to four intermediate checkpoints. Participants are free to choose their own route between the mandatory checkpoints.

The race organisers are currently considering the best approach to honour both Mike’s memory and his wishes for the race. We will communicate more information as soon as we can; however, we ask for your patience and space in the short-term to deal with both the personal and race issues resulting from Mike’s death.
