Mountain Hardwear

Mountain Hardwear have supported Open Adventure races for over five years now. Peter Rostron has been the man behind the scenes, as well as supporting or competing at many races. Peter has moved on to pastures new and we wish him the best of luck. Mountain Hardwear support will continue, with Julie Russell and Toby Davies wishing us success in the up and coming events and commenting:

"Mountain Hardwear are excited to once again sponsor the Open5 series for 2010. The Open5 series continually challenges its competitors to push the limits of performance and it is that same relentless drive that motivates Mountain Hardwear to pursue the ultimate in performance by using the highest quality materials and the most thorough tests to create reliable performance outdoor clothing and equipment".

Look out for the Mountain Hardwear competition coming soon to start the season with a bang and offer our racers the chance to win some great kit.
