Big Build Day Competition

In addition to giving you free food and holding a free prize raffle this month we're running a Big Build Day Competition! All you need do to enter is come along to the Big Build Day on Sunday 16th August and then write a few words telling us about your day. Make sure to tell us who you are and a little bit about yourself and then tell us about your Big Build Day experience, what you did, what you enjoyed, something funny that happened, its really up to you. Try to keep it fairly short, say around 100 words (although we really won't be counting!) Send us your entry by adding it as a comment to our Big Build Day writeup that we'll post soon after the event.

The winning entry will be chosen using mysterious random criteria by the Chase Trails committee (we have a committee?) and will win some Chase Trails related goodies. You have 7 days after the Big Build Day to enter although it will probably take us considerable longer to sort out your prize! Working on the assumption that most people will have stopped reading by now and won't bother entering, if you enter you stand a pretty good chance of winning.

See you on Sunday,


Big build day, Sunday 16th August, Swinnerton Cycles Forest Centre 10am.

Chase Trails reserves the right to cancel or amend this Competition or the Rules without notice in the event of a catastrophe, war, civil or military disturbance, act of God or any actual or anticipated breach of any applicable law or regulation or any other event outside Chase Trails's reasonable control!!!

  3. What I like about Big Build Days!

    I like Big Build Days because it gets me and my family out of the house, so we’re all spending time together in the fresh air.

    The best thing about Big Build Days has got to be Dale and Sharon’s BBQ, it’s delicious! Another thing is making new friends who enjoy building mtb trails as I do.

    I like building mtb trails! It’ s great when we have finished them because we have given people an excuse to get out of the house and do something active. I also enjoy fixing Follow the Dog as it is important that we keep the mountain bikers safe when they ride our trails.
    Bid Build Days are fun when everyone works together and enjoys themselves. I don’t think there is anything that needs improving on Big Builds.
