Haglöfs Open5 Series 2016/17
2016/17 is the eleventh series of Open5 Adventure Races. Mountain Biking, Running, Navigation and ADVENTURE!
Keswick (North Lakes) :: 4th December
Venue for this great event is Threlkeld and the village hall which we use on the Lakes in a Day. The start / finish location will be a short cycle away.
Whatever – we are pretty sure you will have a great time in this amazing area. There really is not a town that has good road connections, mountains and a lake, and great mountain biking at the door. Understandably a top place to live and visit.
Reeth (Yorkshire Dales) :: 5th Feburary 2017
The Open5’s are returning to this popular location as it has so much to offer the adventure racer. Large expanses of moorland, forest & dale and some great mountain bike trails.
Bill Owen and Colin Dale are both seasoned Open5 veterans, not only in the number of events they have attended but also in their actual age. But don’t let that fool you – this pair are hot on the heels of the younger crowd. With a wealth of racing experience and a great knowledge of the local area, there are sure to be some treats in store and some cunning control locations.
Church Stretton (Shropshire) :: 5th March 2017
Starting from the Shropshire town of Church Stretton, this event looks to explore the hills of the Long Mynd – a location we have been to a few times and one that is always a favourite and a real surprise.
Ampleforth (North York Moors) :: 2nd April 2017
The North York Moors is a little favourite of Open Adventure, we have been to Sutton Bank a few times but for this years event we are approach this location from Ampleforth – expect some great views for both the running and the MTBing.
