Big smiles up high
Its July! Boy the world is spinning around quickly, read on for news of the Open24, what happened at the Open12 and how to play around in the trees with Go-Ape.
It's just around the corner! With speculation rife on the location and bemusement on the special stages, we can assure this will be a very different Open24 and one that won't disappoint.
We will announce the location of registration for this years Open24 on Saturday 12th July, so check the website out next week.
Entries also close on 12th July Call after to check availability. NB existing entries need to finalise any boat hire before the 12th.
The second Open12 proved to be a gem, with Open Adventure's first event in the Peaks. We picked the cream of the MTBing and running.
Steve fisher put together a little video which you can see on the Open Adventure home page or on You Tube here. Photos from James Kirby here and a race report from the guys at The North Face, an event not to be forgotten.
We will be back to the Peaks next April with an Open5 in Castleton.
Swinging in the trees?
Last autumn as a birthday treat for Lisa's twin nieces we went to Go-Ape at Dalby forest - what a day out! The smiles, the giggles, stomach turning experiences all thrown in to 3 hours was almost too much. So when we got flumxed for special stages on the Open12, Go-Ape fitted the bill.
A great day out for any budding racer young or old.

Hopefully see you in Wales at the end of July.
PS Dates for the new Mountain Hardwear Open5 series are 2 Nov, 7 Dec, 1st Feb, 1st Mar and 5th April. See www.openadventure.com for details.
