The Iron Bum Run

The Iron Bum Run

The Iron Bum Run (IBR) provides a unique challenge that will stretch your endurance as a long-distance rider.

There are three categories on this challenge:

Category A – The IBR 1000 challenges a rider to cover a minimum distance of 1000km in 24 continuous hours

Category B - The IBR 1500 challenges a rider to cover a minimum distance of 1500km in 24 continuous hours

Category C - The IBR 2500 challenges a rider to cover a minimum distance of 2500km in 48 continuous hours.

Your ride commences with the date and time indicated on your first check-in with the TT App.

The finish date and time from the final check-in will be used to calculate the elapsed time and mileage of your journey. Upon 48hrs after your first check-in, the clock stops counting and the verification process begins.

Only one category can be recognized within one run.

The ONLY method of documenting check-ins remains the TT Mobile App. In order to keep these runs from becoming races, the fastest completion time will not be stated.

Please keep in mind, the hours are wall clock time, not riding time.

So, choose any route you wish: When the ride is over, you have not only conquered a very tough run, you will also be certified one of Nigeria’s Toughest Riders.
