LE JOG 2021

Land's End - John O'Groats


An Event Designed For Experts

4 to 7 December 2021

Considered by crews as one of the most demanding and challenging events in Europe and a definite to be ticked on your “must do” events list! HERO’s Land’s End to John O’Groats Reliability Trial is open to cars of a specification built before 1986. Running in December, tough conditions are to be expected, but no-one crosses the finish line without a smile on their face. The event has been tackled and completed by novice crews in the past, however, we would recommend undertaking less advanced events as a preparatory measure prior to competing on Le Jog.

Event Schedule


Leg One

The usual early start overlooking the rugged Cornish Coastline sees crews straight into the opening Test around Land’s End. The first cars tackle the cliff route in the dark before making their way to the first Regularity, they shouldn’t worry however as everyone will get a close up look at more cliffs later in the morning! The route takes crews to a new test venue and on through some of the lesser used back roads of Cornwall and mid Devon with a lunch stop close to Tiverton. Fully fuelled we plan to venture into pastures new through some favourite rally roads of yesteryear in the Devon Somerset borders concluding with a series of tight tests before a halt in the Newport area.


Leg Two

Leg 2 sees crews heading off into the darkness and heading north for the first of several challenging Regularities in the Welsh Marches followed by a quick break. The action then intensifies with a the now traditional sting in the tail Time Control section that will keep both crew members on their toes before the relaxed run to the Hotel in Chester.


Leg Three

Fully refreshed after a well earned break, the route see crews tackle three tests on the run up the M6 to north of Preston where the final leg really gets going. A long regularity across the hills and fells of the area is followed by more tests before a lunch stop on the outskirts of Kirkby Lonsdale. We are truly in the north at this point but there’s more action to follow as darkness will contrive to increase the challenge of the final regularities before crews arrive for their overnight halt in Newcastle.


Leg Four

The pressure is maintained with a prompt start that leads into a series of tests, route checks and regularities taking us across the border and into Scotland for a late lunch in the Edinburgh area. The day is only half done at this stage and we push further north and on to the more remote roads that the area has to offer for another test and five more regularities before a rest halt at Aviemore. Crews that competed in 2017 will know how the weather can change in this area and appreciate the unique challenges of competing on LeJog.


Leg Five

Returning for 2021, the restart sees crews heading into a ‘Loch Ness Monster’ regularity which will require maximum concentration if medals are to be retained. Battle will continue as the route heads further north through the final sections before proceedings reach a conclusion, accompanied by the strains of the piper, at the finish line in John O’Groats.
