Haglöfs Open5 Adventure Racing series comes to Innerleithen
The second event of this series, sponsored by Haglöfs, will be based in Innerleithen on the 3rd November. This well-established series, now in it's 9th year, is a 5 hour event with a mix of mountain biking, running, navigation and strategy.
Innerleithen is known for it's mountain biking but don't expect routes to stick to the built trails. Planner Joe Faulkner is a fan of wild country, so competitors may find themselves exploring further afield, to the southern uplands. Run routes too will break out into rolling countryside, and competitors will be able to take in stunning views from the heights if they allow themselves to take a breather.
The first event in the series, in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, produced some close racing; 2 points and 23 seconds separated the top 3 male solos. There was some indication of home advantage too - with almost half of the podium places being claimed by local racers. Will this be the case in Innerleithen?
Why not come along and see what this sport & this area of the country have to offer. You can enter online at www.openadventure.com, or just come along & have a go on the day. More information available on the Open Adventure website, and on our facebook page.
