Mountain Hardwear Open5 Series

Hotting up literally with dare we say a blue sky event in Sedbergh. Local David Hetherington pulled out the stops with an excellent event - unsure just ask anyone who came along.

Mini report here and free photos online here.

The scores are getting tight at the top of the series with still all to play for in many of the categories and £500 vouchers for highest scoring female and male competitors. Expect a true finale in Ruthin, North Wales at the beginning of April. Series table here

Tim and John have been putting the miles in planning the next event, with lets say more of a technical twinge to the run for those who elect to go off the path and get some the more distant checkpoints.

Bit of a last minute glitch with our venue (like they forgot we were coming) has meant we have had to move registration. This is now at Ruthin Rugby Club.. more details online.

Boats.. we have got in to the boat business and now the proud owners of a fleet of Necky Amuruk tandem sea kayaks. We are planning to long term rent these out over spring / early summer and autumn / winter each year - with them being available for use at the Open24 and the adidas TERREX events. They will be available to rent later in April.. wing us an email if you are interested in having one to train in.


We have been helping these guys out as they step in to the world of organising Adventure Races - the format is bit off the norm and we like it. Last event of their inaugural series is on 18th April if you fancy a quick blast before lunch and you live south of Brum... check them out.



Are you organising an event? We have a stack of kit we hire to other organisers - radios, start gantries, marquees, race clocks and we know our onions when it comes to putting an event on in rural britain. If you need to hire any kit give us a shout - its quite possible we will lend some for free if you put our event leaflet in your goodie bags. Wing us an email to chat about it. More detail here

Have a good day and hope to see you at an event soon.

No worries
James Thurlow
