What a difference a month makes...

The sun certainly shone for the fourth Open5 in the Mountain Hardwear Open5 series in Bakewell.

In marked contrast to the low scores from the previous event in gales and rain, 4 finishers managed to clear the course and attain a maximum score of 600 points! Generally a high scoring event there were lots of smiles at the finish and lots of banter about what could have been for early finishers...

The final event in the series is this Sunday at Grizedale in the Lake District - Anthony Cooper has found the best of what this area has to offer in a stunning part of the country.

Endurance Series coming up


If you have done the Open5 events and want something with a bit of a twist then the Open5+ is a must for your diary. With biking and running at its core we like to throw a little extra open adventure spice into the mix to keep you on your toes.

If you want to make a weekend of it then why not try out the Ocean Kayak Race. Organised by our water safety guy James Stevenson, it's sure to be a great race around the shores of Anglesey.

Open5+ 21st May
Ocean Kayak Race 22nd May




Endurance Series coming up :: Open5+


North Yorks singlespeed guru Wayne Elliot promises to make this Open12 one to remember. If you fancy stepping up from an Open5 to something more challenging then look no further!

Well proper climbing is going to figure in this event again - its not mandatory to do the climbs but they will be part of the event and if your climbing is up to it you will get a few extra points..



Endurance Series coming up :: Open12


Back in the Lakes for the third time, the Open24 is a must for any serious adventure endurance junkie. In addition to running, biking and kayaking there will be an assortment of our famous/infamous 'trouser fillers' to contend with. Open Adventure regulars Kim Collison and Neil Hamblin are the men tasked with supplying the best of what the Lakes has to offer...

Ant and Bruces Tri thing..

Open Adventure regulars Anthony Emmet and Bruce Duncan will be attempting the 'biggest challenge of their lives' on 18th April 2011 by taking on a triathlon of epic proportions, theepictri.

They will start by running the Bob Graham round, then will journey up to John O'Groats to cycle to Lands End on a tandem and complete their 'tri' by taking part in the Devizes to Westminster kayak race.

They are doing this for a very good cause - Cancer Research UK. You can sponsor the guys by visiting their website, theepictri.com

Good luck to you both.
