That’s another month gone by and suddenly another 12 hours of pure adventure racing is upon us. The new format on the Open 12 of 6 hours of racing and a break then 6 hours more may sound easier but don’t be lulled into a false sense of security we have plenty of surprises up our sleeves. Experienced Endurance racer; Dave Johnson has planned this game of two halves and is looking forward to his course being put to the ultimate test.

Don’t forget that caterer’s Sticky Ginger are providing food from 9am onwards on the Saturday and they have brought in a mammoth amount of supplies for hungry racers on Sunday as you cross the finish line.

More details on the Open12, entries close Sunday night.


Ready for Action

It is survival of the fittest - so if you have made it over the first two hurdles in the Planetfear Endurance Series you will be ready for the final leap – the Open 24. It will be a few weeks yet until we release the exact location in North Wales where the fun will begin but sea paddling is making up a significant chunk of the race so it narrows down the options. Who knows what Andy has ready for you but you can guarantee that you will visit some of the far flung corners of this Welsh playground.

More details on the Open24.
