NAM Challenge 2021

Introducing a new, COVID-secure riding challenge for 2021! Can you earn full bragging rights by taking a photograph of your bike and/or yourself (in bike gear) at each one of our mystery locations?

The competition will run throughout the 2021 riding season with new clues released each quarter. This isn’t an iron-butt challenge; you will have a full 3 months to complete each set of clues. However, a full tank or two may needed for the round-trip to some of the locations!

It isn’t too late to enter the challenge! Join for one, two or all three quarters. See below for rules and registration instructions .

The Competition

This is primarily a motorcycling rally event aimed at riders and their pillions. It is also a digital photographic competition. The challenge will be split into three parts throughout the riding season:

  • Grand Prix Q1 (1st March to 31st May 2021)
  • Grand Prix Q2 (1st June to 31st August 2021)
  • Grand Prix Q3 (1st September to 31st November 2021)

The competition is open to members of Northumbria Advanced Motorcyclists. Members may enter any or all of the Grands Prix by registering with Email me .com. There is no entry fee.

Rules

Clues to three sets of landmarks will be released quarterly (1st March, 1st June, 1st September).

  • You will be awarded points for each landmark visited. The number of points awarded is dependent on the landmark’s location and difficulty.
  • To prove that you have visited the landmark you will be required to take a photograph of the site with your motorcycle or yourself in the scene.
  • All photographs must be taken between 1st March and 31st November 2021.
  • Bonus points may be awarded at the judges’ discretion for images considered particularly exceptional or creative.

Please email your photographs to challenge@namrider.com as soon as possible after being taken.

Please note: this is not a race or an iron butt challenge! No extra points will be awarded for visiting all landmarks first.

Prizes

There will be a prize for the winner of each Grand Prix. Only photographic entries received before the end of each Grand Prix will qualify.

Prizes will also be awarded to the riders with the three highest scores accumulated over all three Grands Prix. All photographic entries received before 31st November 2021 will qualify.

Data protection

By entering the competition, riders and pillions accept that:

  • images may be shown on screen at a NAM club night or appear on namrider.com
  • email addresses will be retained by the organisers for the duration of the competition and for the sole purpose of providing updates about NAM Challenge 2021
