Sport in the district

The Women's Tour 2018

We’re so proud that stage two of the Ovo Energy Women’s Tour 2018 is coming to Rushden and are busy planning lots of community events with Rushden Town Council in the run up to race day. Keep an eye on the Rushden Town Council website for details of these events.

Details of the route can be found on the official Women's Tour website.  You can also sign up for the tour enewsletter so you can keep up to date with the latest news about the Ovo Energy Women’s Tour.

As it’s a road cycle race, there will be some road closures and diversions in place and these will be posted on the Rushden Town Council website along with information about how you can come along and cheer on the world’s top female cyclists as they set off from Rushden Hall.

This is a very special event and a great opportunity to showcase our beautiful district so we hope as many of you as possible will join us in supporting the riders and the events we have planned.

This page will be updated regularly with the latest news and updates about the Ovo Energy Women’s Tour coming to East Northamptonshire.
