Annual Waller Pain hill-climb race in Caterham, Surrey, takes place this Sunday, June 19

The Waller Pain hill-climb in Caterham, Surrey, returns this Sunday (June 19) for its sixth edition.

One of the few hill-climbs run the summer months, the race attracts a mix of elite athletes, club riders and have-a-go-heroes.

The emphasis is firmly on fun, with categories for seniors, veterans, novices, under-16s, under-12s and even a fancy dress category.

Waller Lane in Caterham hosts the climb, with the gradient touching 20 per cent in places over its 0.3-mile length.

The event is run by Caterham Round Table as part of the Caterham Festival, with any proceeds going to local charities.

The first rider sets off at 10am, with entries made on the day from 9am. For more information visit the Caterham Round Table website.

Last year’s event was won by Matthew Burton (Velo Club Rutland) and Helen McKay (Les Filles RT).
