We will keep this brief - the Open24 is just around the corner. The UK's only 24 hour adventure race. We are pretty confident that this will be better than last year with more trouser fillers and stages never seen in Adventure Racing in the UK. The deadline for reduced entry is this weekend, whilst entries don't close until mid July. If you are hoping to be in the Yorkshire Dales at the end of July you can find the entry form here. If your partner in crime is on the other side of the country, don't worry we can get them to sign at registration.The question that seems to find its way to our inbox daily is how many entries and when will you be full? not sure we know the answer to the latter. At the moment the entry limit is 75 pairs - we have 40 pairs entered, however if we go by last years trend of 60% entering in July then the event will be full - don't get caught out.
