Welcome to the WGT Winter Series…..2nd edition.
After a fruitful summer racing season outdoors, we’re heading back to the virtual world to end the year in race-mode. It’s sure to be as fierce as ever, as the competition resumes between the Scots and the Welsh, the Saltires and the Dragons, with a little outdoor running thrown in for good measure. Sign up here to take part in the ‘comfort’ of your own garage, shed, or adapted pain-studio.

This is an 8 round, AG-based competition, comprising 6 Zwift cycling rounds and 2 outdoor running rounds. You must complete 5 out of 8 rounds to qualify overall. Prize details are below. There will also be a couple of warm-up races to get everyone back in the swing of things.
